Every blogger has a right to grow. It is the birthright of a blogger to grow vertically and horizontally. This is not in the context of the physical growth of a blogger. I am talking about the organic growth of your (and my of course) blog in terms of outreach, likings, visitors, unique visitors, comments, love, affection, pampering, and all such factors that help in the growth of a blog. The unboxing event of Horlicks Growth+ #CatchUpOnGrowth Indiblogger Meet at New Delhi was perhaps ideally an ideal event to understand a development in the field of nutrition sciences (and we were the first in the country to witness the launch and unveiling, unboxing) with the launch of this new product from GSK group.
This new product. Horlicks Growth+, promises to offer advanced nutrition for growth and development to children during their crucial years of growth i.e. 3 to 9. Unlike blogger having no age limit for growth of his or her blog (neither blogger's or blog's) here it matters a lot when we talk of physical growth of a child, and it is seriously important to understand it irrespective of whether you have a kid in that slab of 3 to 9 years of age. If you have crossed this age and have already achieved other milestones beyond 9 years of age, you must have felt for yourself, or your peers around, when you were in this age slab, who were short in height, or lacking weight as per standard norms, you would wonder if the product was launched during that duration and you would definitely have helped those in need of this.
Well, if you kids in this range, do look around, and watch if they are in need of these critical constituents required for proper growth, then start using it. Use only if the regular diet is not able to fulfill the need because as the experts there confirmed a supplement is a supplement and can never compete with the original. Supplement only becomes handy if the regular and normal diet is lacking in these nutrients helpful for growth or for some other reasons. And do look around for the peers, schoolmates, friends of your kids for the same to help them in time. Because once they cross 9, these efforts will go waste and probably will haunt lifelong.
And if you are yet to be parents, it is still more important to learn the importance of products like Horlicks Growth+ that are unique, specific to the need, and promise to work as per the research and lab tests. Now there is another category left where you might be in the group of Narendra Modi, Mamta Banerjee, Khushwant Singh, Amrita Pritam, Jayalalitha, Anandiben, Rahul Gandhi, who intentionally decided not to marry or have not been able to get the right kind of match, you still must learn about this product to help your friends, family, and society. It is very important to learn about importance of right growth and catching up on lost growth. Both are time constrained to act upon. Once the time is gone, it is just the repentance that is left.

Dr. Aditya Kaushik, Head Medical Affairs for Indian Subcontinent, GSK Consumer Healthcare described the product details, laboratory tests, extensive research work done, and clinical experiences.
This is probably the first of its kind of advanced nutrition health food drink (HFD) launched in India. As guided by the panelists, it is always good to provide and healthy natural food to have a healthy growth of the child. The good habits of healthy food inculcated in kids right in the beginning helps a lot in their natural growth. But in case if the train is missed by any chance, then Horlicks Growth+ proves helpful to the children who have fallen behind their natural & healthy growth. The product works wonder during 3-9 years of age. Parents have to act smartly and wisely to make their kids learn the importance of healthy diet and its criticality in their natural growth. At times, they have to go creative and innovative in this regard. An important point to note is that Horlicks Growth+ is a nutrition supplement and not a meal substitute or replacement. Horlicks Growth+ constitutes important nutrients, minerals, vitamins and proteins to provide additional nutrition required for the growth of a child. These constituents include Whey Protein, important amino acids, Calcium, Vitamins (A, D, & C), Iron, and Zinc that are key components for growth of height and weight.
Overall, May 15th has been an interesting day organized by IndiBlogger in Delhi. It was full of fun, knowledge, amusement, sharing, and learning. It is evident that once the growth period of a child is over, that is when he or she crosses 9 years of age, and there has been a substantial shortfall in the growth during that period, it haunts and pains not only the child but the whole family. And not only this, it brings a sense of guilt, insecurity, lack of confidence, and a lot more similar kind of feelings that remain there throughout the life. That brings forwards the prime importance of such unique and critical yet important supplement growth products like this.
