Now, hold on…

Here comes….

Your favorite….

As fourth and last example…

Example #4

Patanjali Mango Juice

Please forgive us if you are a big Patanjali fan

We are not against any company

We are here for you…

We are genuinely concerned for

the health and well being

of you and your loved ones.

It is having 22% mango pulp.

& of course, it also contains sugar.

It also contains artificial ingredients-

  • Acidity regulator (INS 330)
  • Antioxidant (INS 300)

After these 4 examples,

the situation might seem to be a bit scary!

But you don’t need to worry…

Just remember,

What you used to have as a small child?

  • Replace ready made panha with homemade panha;

made up of fresh green mango.

  • Replace butter scotch flavored apple crush with

a homemade fresh kesar badam milk

or homemade thandai.

  • Replace these colorful jelly having only sugar with

more vibrant and naturally colorful fresh food salad.

  • Replace those artificially flavored cream biscuit with

home made sukhdi.

& last but not the least,

  • Replace that readymade mango juice with

real mango.

Let your child suck the mangoes…

Let them spoil their face & cloths…

There is so much fun in it!

Even if these artificial ingredients are

approved by the authorities,

we don’t know what will be the

long term effect on our child

when they grow up.


We are already witnessing-

  • Heart attack at small ages
  • Increased irritability
  • Serious issue with infertility in young couples &
  • Increased cases of cancer in all ages

Why to take chance?

Make sure …

You are not harming yourself or your child…
