It is not very easy to make kids have milk. Especially when they see plain milk they literally run away and give reasons for not having them. Rather trick or bribe the kids with toys or chocolates it’s better to try tricks in milk by adding some healthy colours and flavour to them.

Turmeric is the  ‘Queen of spices’, most used medicinal spice in the Indian and Chinese medicines. It is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric in milk is used to treat many health issues.
