Old bed times stories by grandmother always told us about all the seasons and each having its own time period. Due to global warming that we’re seeing now, there is tremendous rise in temperature which has affected everything especially the seasons.
As a result, the summer season here is now observed for good 6 to 8 months. This kind of weather brings along the craving to try something cold and refreshing, and when it comes to choosing what to give to the children at home, we always look out for the healthier and delicious options.
