Be a #YesMom – Say Yes to Immunity @Immuno_Boosters

Recently, I came across a video on social media that showed a social experiment where moms saw the effects of saying ‘no’ to their kids. I wondered, did those moms become Yes Moms and was it difficult to become a #YesMom after years of saying no? I was delighted to what came next…

This video made me think and reflect on how I speak to my child and what impact it might have on his young mind.

How many times a day do I say ‘No’ to my child? I think, a hundred times, at least. That’s because I am that over-cautious mother. I believe that I must deny his requests which has the potential to harm him. So, I use the word ‘No’ liberally every day. But I do realize that this may have a negative impact on my child.

We all know that ‘No’ is restrictive and limits the boundaries of a child, and ‘Yes’ is all about encouragement and positivity. But is it easy to say ‘Yes’ more often?

Saying ‘Yes’ when the child wants to eat ice-creams first thing in the morning or gets soaking wet while sprinkling water in the garden or doesn’t want to eat fruits and vegetables, can be challenging. That’s because I worry about him getting sick. Since his immunity is still in the growing stage, my child is vulnerable to infections. Poor immunity with frequent infections may impact his physical and mental growth, hence I resort to saying ‘No’.

A healthy body begins with a healthy immune system. A regular balanced diet is the best way to help prevent disease and infections. The food that my kid eats may not be providing him with the nutrients he needs to have a strong immune system, this could be because of food adulteration or fussy habits. Thankfully, I came across a nutritional supplement which I believe can plug these dietary gaps and build my kid’s immunity.

ActivKids Immuno Boosters from Cipla is a unique nutritional supplement for kids that helps build their immunity. It is available in a tasty choco-bite format (you can give this to your kid as is!) which gives up to 100% RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) of key Immunity Nutrients:

  • Vitamin A – Anti-infective vitamin
  • Vitamin C – Anti-immune stress vitamin
  • Vitamin B9 – Anti-cold vitamin
  • Iron – Anti-microbial mineral
  • 7 essential nutrients like B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, D, Zinc

The nutrients present in ActivKids Immuno Boosters help build Immunity in the following ways:

  • Provides immune strength to fight germs
  • Helps in blood formation
  • Helps in formation of immune cells
  • Protects body cells from damage
  • Strengthens skin’s defence system

Each choco-bite contributes to less than 1% calorie from sugar of the total daily energy requirement and thus presents no risks of dental caries and high calorie intake.

ActivKids Immuno Boosters is available for kids for two age groups of children, 4-6 Years and 7+ years.

After watching the video, I decided to give it a try. The nutrients in ActivKids Immuno Boosters will strengthen the immune system of my child and I may not have to worry or stress about keeping him infection free and healthy.

So I started my #YesChallenge journey by building strong immunity for my child, I would definitely advise other moms to take up the #YesChallenge for positive and liberal development of your child. Yes, my child’s immunity is something that is always on my mind and I’m sure it is the case with all of you. Which is where nutrition become very important and can make a whole gamut of difference. But with ActivKids Immuno Boosters in your pocket, you can now keep saying “Yes” while knowing that your child’s immunity has been strengthened.  

I have joined the #YesMom brigade. You can be a part of it too. Let’s bring about a positive and healthy transformation in not only in our life but that of our children too. BE A #YesMom TODAY!

Do share your #YesChallenge stories with me in the comment section and you could get a chance to attend #YesMom day with Mandira Bedi.

  1. So what I understand here is if I give ActivKids Immuno Boosters to my kids, I can allow them to eat anything at any time of the day. Right?

  2. Thought-provoking video. Well, my elder son was a sickly child till he started going to school. Thankfully, I stopped being overprotective for my younger son. That surely helps to build immunity.

    • Glad you liked the message showed in the video. I know what you mean, when we say yes more often, we say yes to a lot of positive things. Glad that it worked for your little one, Lata 🙂

  3. Eating healthy foods keeps the immune system in optimal working order. Since we dont get all the vital nutrients from our food, a nutritional supplement like ActivKids Immuno Boosters seems like a good option. Will try it out for my son and I will be a #YesMom too! Thanks for sharing, Shilpa

    • True,nutritional supplements can give the immune system an added boost and help the kids stay health. Would love to know your experience with ActivKids Immuno Boosters, Sheetal 🙂

  4. Agree with you, while we say No to our kids for their benefit, but it can be perceived in a totally different way by them. We must say Yes more often as compared to No and let them explore and enjoy their childhood. Saying Yes does not mean we agree to unreasonable demands. This would help them to be more responsible in setting their own limits.

    • Well said, Aashima. Saying No too often may restrict the child to be his natural self and that might harm in more ways than one. Saying Yes more often will empower them and make them responsible as well.

  5. Kids immunity is for sure a reason of great concern. They get sick so fast. I can understand why a mom would be so worried. And the food we eat isn’t as nutritious as it used to be. These supplements sound good. Enjoy being a yesmom

    • True, frequent infections, colds and fevers in a child can be alarming and difficult to deal with, not only for the child but for the parents as well. Having a stronger immune system helps the child stay healthy and nutritional supplements can help in this regard. Thanks Raj!

  6. A very informative post for parents with young kids. I have forgotten what I used to give to my children 25 years ago 🙂 Good to see such initiatives for Children’s health. Great post, Shilpa

    • I know what you mean, Sulekha. How time flies and how with changing times, we need to change our parenting approach as well. Thanks, glad you liked this post!

  7. Immunity boosters are always a great idea with kids who are prone to picking up infections every now and then. The #YesChallenge sounds like an interesting idea and am now waiting to hear more from you about how you are getting there as a mom! Son will love it am sure. 😀

    • True, if a child is sick too often, it’s time to take a step back, look at the larger picture, and find ways to reinforce the immune system. A nutritional supplement like ActivKids Immuno Boosters is just what the doctor ordered. Will share the positive effects of the #YesChallenge soon. Thanks for reading and sharing, Esha 🙂

  8. I loved the video and the underlying message. ‘No’ is definitely very restrictive and has negative impact on the psyche of the child. We have ourselves felt this as children, didn’t we? I don’t think I could ever become a #YesMom but I have definitely become much more calmer and less yelling mother. I now take time to get a control of the situation by moving away from that place at that moment. It helps me cool down and think rationally. It also helps the children understand what went wrong and how they should approach it. Glad that I didn’t miss this post. 🙂
