“Hey Hardik, are you going to come to play football with me today in our society’s ground?”
“I want to, but I am not feeling well today. I am suffering from fever and cold. Mom says I should take some rest. You carry on, Parth.”
“Oh, that’s bad. I’ll have to ask someone else. No issues. You take care, Hardik. We’ll play when you’re feeling well.”
“Sure, Parth. We’ll play soon. Bye.”
Parth hung up the phone and went to play football. Hardik’s parents and his grandparents were concerned about him. He was just 8 years old. He often fell ill and he could neither play nor hang out with his friends. When he’d be hale and hearty, he would play a lot, participate in sports and he also won trophies sometimes. It made his family feel proud; he enjoyed participating and winning. After all, winning makes any child feel happy and a child’s happiness is what his family wants the most for the child.
Often, this happiness takes a beating because of the child’s health. Well, as the old adage says “Health is wealth”. It can’t be neglected. Hardik’s mom was quite worried about Hardik’s health. If he kept falling ill like that, he’d miss out a lot and sadness would fill the home. Everyone in Hardik’s family wished that it should not happen eventually. Care had to be taken and in a proper manner.
Hardik’s mom made an appointment with a doctor to figure out how the issue can be tackled. Hardik didn’t want to meet the doctor. He thought he’d have to take the pain of the needle. He resisted initially, but then yielded when his mother assured him that there will be no injection and he’d get chocolates later if he’d visit the doctor. Hardik and his mom went to the doctor’s clinic.
“Hello, Mrs. Mehra. I understand you’re concerned about Hardik’s health.” the doctor said.
“Yes, I am. Our whole family is.” Hardik’s mom said.
“Okay, I would like to ask a few questions to him so that I can understand the situation.”
“Sure. Hardik, doctor uncle wants to talk with you. Don’t worry. He won’t give you an injection.”
“Hello, Hardik. How are you?” the doctor asked him.
“I am not feeling well. I am having cold and fever.”
“Does it happen often?”
“What do you eat usually? Which food do you like?”
“I like bread, butter, pizza, pasta, Chinese, eggs, cookies, chips, burgers, ice cream and chocolates.”
“I see. Do you like vegetables?”
“Sometime. Not all of them. I don’t like the taste.”
“Mrs. Mehra, I think you need to change his diet habits. It seems he consumes a lot of junk food. So, he rarely gets the immunity that vegetables and grains provide.”
“I agree. I have tried a lot, but most of the time he never eats. So, I have to give him something that he likes, else he goes to bed with an empty stomach. Is there any other way he can get the immunity from?”
Well, isn’t this the story of kids these days. They are various types of food, but they prefer junk instead because they do not like vegetables and grains.
