Nu- Shakti in collaboration with Momspresso, organised an event in Chennai at Fab Cafe on 26th November 2019. These days whatever we eat has pesticides and chemicals in it. It is very important for everyone to get right kinds of nutrients in our everyday lives. The event was conducted by Vaishali, who gave us the introduction about Nu -Shakti and the different kinds of products .

I am so glad that I found out about Nu-Shakti. Before attending the event I did not know hat micro nutrients were and how essential they were for our everyday diet.
It can be given to everyone above 6 months of age except for thalassemia patients
Vaishali gave us a quiz to check if our family was nutrition positive. After calculating the result, I found out that my family was medium nutrient but still we need to be high nutrient.
Also Vaishali had organised another lovely game for the mothers, - Memory Game. She divided us into pairs and gave us a sheet of different foods and other objects. She gave us 30 seconds to go through all the products and then told us to write what we remembered. It was a nice fun game.
The event was very informative and thank you Nu -Shakti for giving us samples of all the products. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. Make Nu-Shakti a part of your everyday meal and lead a healthy, nutritious and fit life
