As kids we played a lot of games and I just don’t mean outdoor games but also indoor ones. I personally had a huge collection of G.I. JOEs and HE-MAN and conjured up some crazy imaginative worlds within the confines of my home. But the one that really challenged me and my imagination was Monopoly. This game has broken friendships and family ties more than diplomatic breakdowns between two countries.
We have hit 50 episodes in just under a year! And what a to celebrate it, we got a really cool dad to talk about his entrepreneurial journey into starting a kids health food company.

For this episode once again we are joined by Dr. Wilona Annunciation and along with her we also invited Vaishali Sudan Sharma, a marketing professional and a mother to a 6-year-old son.
One of the biggest challenges that parents face is engaging their kids. And it has become more pronounced during this pandemic, especially with work-from-home, house work and online schooling. All of this bundled up in a not-so-fun package, especially for us parents.
I think it is safe to assume that none of us, and I mean NONE OF US, saw online education coming, at least in the primary sector.
