Turmeric is used as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye! Hold up the jar and say: “orange” show it to the baby and say: “orange!” Turmeric is orange! ( While talking to the baby, keep passing his hands on the jar ,He will get attracted to the color, put it from one hand to another ,make it accessible and touchable for the baby ). Turmeric has been used as a spice and medical herb. It contains compounds with medical properties. The most important compound in turmeric is “Curcuma” that has powerful “Anti- inflammatory effects and is a very strong “Antioxidant”! It Is also an excellent source of “Vitamin C” and “Fiber”! Turmeric contains ”Fatty acids” like”omega3” and “omega6”. These fatty acids enhance brain function, reduce inflammation, keep arteries clear and improve your body response to “insulin”! Turmeric is very rich in” iron”. Without “iron”, your body’s red cells will deplete, causing weakness and extreme fatigue!

So, as you can see “turmeric” protects and cures our body from lots of diseases .Take a pinch of turmeric in your hand and touch the baby’s nose and say: nose!
