There are always so many, but here are some I personally use: 1. To find pairs of socks at the right time, always keep one inside the other. that way, you don't have to rush on school mornings to find the missing pair! 2. Colgate toothpaste can take care of basic mouth and lip sores, as well as help to ease a small burn. Apply it at bed time to reduce the sores. 3. regularly apply neem oil on your child's hair and scalp to prevent lice infestation - works wonders on school-going kids! 4. always keep some boiled vegetables (especially boiled potatoes) in your fridge. you can add it in the morning to your child's school lunch recipes such as poha, dosa, sandwich, pasta and absolutely anything that can make use of some veggies. 5. instead of adding plain ice cubes, make juice cubes out of freshly squeezed fruit juices. add them to a glass of plain water and let your child enjoy some delicious and healthy infused water :)

There must be endless, but with my 5-year-old I am listing the ones I use. Have a separate drawer to put all her rubber bands, so that we are not in a mess in the morning during her school time. Always have besan at home, so if nothing is there, a besan ka cheela will save you. It is not only tasty but healthy too. Always have honey mixed with sitopaladi (ayurvedic powder) in the fridge, and it helps in curbing the throat infection that starts with pain in the throat when you swallow spit. It is a wonder medicine. When travelling, 'always' carry crocin, cyclopalm or any other syrup for tummy ache. If you are going out of the home, no matter small or long distance, always carry a spare set of clothes of your kid. A spare top of yours too won't harm. If you haven't already then learn the recipe of idli. It is the most easy, healthy and light thing that you can give to your kid.
