Conversation with Lecin and Low Carb Gluten Free Almond Mint Ribbons

As always conversations that cover a crucial topic but involve a fun interaction are my favourite ones. So as Nupur and I spoke about the importance of Early Childhood Education, Learning , Nutrition and their inter connectivity, it was great to be able to share what I felt had worked or was working for me.

See the entire conversation here.

I also urge you to support the work that LECIN – Let’s Educate Children In Need does in Early Childhood Education of children from low income communities, so that they don’t miss out on developing qualities that can help them through their entire life.

If you liked our session and found it valuable please do contribute towards their work and also spread the word. Contribution link
