p>Food is a sensitive issue with most kids, at one age or another. They always want to snack and you mostly want them to have proper meals. Unfortunately, there are very few locally available brands of healthy kids’ snacks, so we have to rely on imported stuff like cereal bars and other munchies from Gerber, Kellogg, Heinz, et cetera.
Most leading kids’ stores stock some products but not always the whole variety. And if you are planning to feed these to your child regularly [or your child gets hooked on to them, as was my case!] it becomes a little expensive. Unless you buy in bulk, no retailer will give you discount on imported kids’ foodstuff.
None of us likes to think in terms
of money when it comes to food, but it always pays to be pennywise. I am determined to give my child the best [as are all of us] but I am also equally determined to do it wisely and thriftily. With this resolve I set out to find that one place where I would get everything I need and get it at the cheapest possible price. This is when I discovered the INA market opposite Dilli Haat.
They stock a lot of imported food brands – kids’ and otherwise, at rates cheaper than the
retailers. The price difference varies from one product to another, but it’s enough to make a quarterly visit worth it. Everything from Heinz babyfoods to Coke Zero is available here. It’s heaven
for anyone who loves to cook and experiment
and try their hand at global recipes. All varieties of packaged foods are available in abundance.
The market is closed on Mondays.
