Meet the Mom: Amrita Raichand, who's also Celebrity Chef!
My Mom Quotient:
I am an emotionally balanced mother. I am liberal and at the same time a disciplinarian. I give my child his space but at the same time keep track of all that he does just to ensure that he is safe☺. Since I am a working mother, I make sure I space my work out (luckily in my field I have the liberty to do that) in such a way that I so that I can spend quality time with him. My favourite and most special moment with Agastya is bedtime as that is our time to talk about the whole day, confessions if been naughty and narration of every possible incident of the day. Every day, I discover something new about my little boy and I try very hard not to miss that opportunity.
My Mom Inc Story:
I started off by being chosen as the face / brand ambassador for Whirlpool Home Appliances which made me famous overnight. The Tag Line "Mummy Ka Magic"Mia's followed me since then as now the cookery show I host on Food Food is also called "Mummy Ka Magic".
The journey from being a model/actor to being a host on a cookery show was never planned. One day Chef Sanjeev Kapoor decided to come home with his lovely better half, Alyona and offered me a cookery show that taught amazing, exciting yet healthy food for kids for his upcoming new channel, FoodFood! Now one thing was trying these fun things at home for my son and a completely different thing to do it for millions of kids out there - seemed tough, even impossible actually but I finally succumbed to Chef Sanjeev's persuasion and his conviction that if there was anyone who can do it, it's me. And that was the beginning of my journey as a chef. Now after almost half a decade of hosting the show and getting so much love and acceptance from my audience, I feel this is where I belong. This is what I want to be, a chef!!! I have a lot of plans and ideas and I am sure my fans will definitely have a lot to look forward to.
Who inspired/supported me?
My family is my biggest support system, especially my husband. I have done more work post marriage and I owe that to my husband being intelligently liberal. He has helped me blossom in my profession without any inhibitions and by providing complete support and I'm truly lucky to have him as my hubby ☺
It's very important to understand your child psychology and what interests your child. As a mother, you must keep these things in mind before taking any decision for your child. What works for some other kid may not necessarily work for your kid.
I love Babychakra because... Babychakra is one stop for all details a mom needs for her baby. Right from health to wellness from shopping to eating, Babychakra has it all.#womensentrepreneurshipday #womenentrepreneurs #mominc
