Me and my kid was walking across road , coming back to home when suddenly he pointed towards a tree and started talking :
” That tree is so so big , dad ” while making gestures .
” Yes , Kid ”
” See , how high its branches has gone , almost 50 feet tall ” .. ” If planted in our backyard, it would have covered our entire house with it’s shade ” ” It seems to be super strong , Just like WWE Superstar KHALI . It can easily force of at least 100 elephants like BAHUBALI ”
” Yes , my son yes . You are completely right ”
Few days after —-
” It’s impossible … DAD , its impossible ” ..
” What happened ”
” Just come with me , while coming back from school I saw a unbelievable thing ”
” Ok , Ok … Let’s go “
” See , this is I was talking about … This tree has fallen HEAD-ON with his entire roots “” Can’t understand , How such a giant structure fallen overnight . ” Although there was a small hurricane last evening , but even much smaller saplings in our backyard survived them easily ”
“Let’s see !! ” And we curisoly started looking around the fallen giant ... ” If you carefully observe the roots , they are all dry and thin .” ” This shows , although the tree grew in age , but due to lack of nourishment at the roots may be during early years , it’s base never grew to being capable to support the growth ” . ” And with growing years, branches keep on spreading out but there was never enough internal strength to support it. Probably , this caused the fall of this tree. ”
” Now I understand DAD , why we take extra care of saplings and keep an eye till it set its roots strongly to grow organically . Those pest control treatment, extra fertilizer, adding good worms is all for early years care which rips fruit forever ” .
This stands TRUE for us too , what we ignore at early stage comes back to haunt further in life and unfortunately there is no way to close this gap after certain years .
Being a father , I take keen interest and participate in ensuring my kids meal plan contains all essential nutrients . I also request my fellow readers to ensure the same & avoid feeding them even bytes of junk food . Because excuse like ” Hey , they are strong and they can digest everything ” or ” It’s Ok , if he eats sometimes ” is only going to putting toll on his body organs and impact the growth .
Check with your doctor on what will work best for your kid and prepare food intakes accordingly . We know all the neighbor ” Grand Ma’s ” bombard us with plethora of food ideas but a double crosscheck will only going to help before making them part of kid’s meal .
So wake up and listen what your child’s health is saying about his diet and ensure they became fit and fine internally to survive any thunderstorm of life .
