There was a buzz of chatter behind the scenes at the Daily Tiffin. We've been working on an interesting plan you see. A plan that actually started to take form when we were thinking about the next theme for our event in May. One thing lead to another and before we knew it we were all excited about what was concocted.

This month we are going for a special theme. To complement the event we are guest hosting for Jyothsna of Currybazaar - Safety Moments, we decided to dedicate the whole month of May to Safety & Care.

Before we get into the details of the theme, let us first give you more details for the event.

Event in May:
Safety Moments is an event created by Jyothsna, which encourages us to take a moment and think about how safe our kitchen is. We thought this would certainly be a very interesting topic for many of our readers and decided to guest host the event for May. We also wanted to specify this into a more appropriate theme for our readers here by categorizing it into a topic many parents find very important - Kids in the Kitchen.

So, in May we would like you to go into your kitchens, have a good long look at it and make a list of any hazards, traps, dangerous gadgets or material you see that might harm the little ones in our lives. The first thing you do - remove them. Then send us an email telling us about them. Even if your kitchen is a safe haven for children - tell us what measures you took to remove those lurking dangers.

The Details:

  1. If you have a blog write an article about the current theme and blog about it anytime from now till the deadline. If you do not have a blog then email your entry and we will add it to the roundup. The deadline for this event is May 19th.
  2. Email your entry with the following information:
    • Your Name
    • Your Blog Name
    • URL/Permalink to your post
    Those sending their entries per email are requested to send:
    • their name
    • their write up in a text file (please check for grammar, as we will be copying and pasting)
  3. In your post please include a link to this post, so your readers get a chance to inform themselves of the event and eventually take part too.
  4. Please email your entries to blogmeeta@gmail.com no later than May 19th

Theme in May:
Safety and care however, does not only start and end in our kitchens. It is something that should accompany us where ever we go and what ever we do. This topic is so important that we want to dedicate the month of May to Safety & Care in our lives. From May 1st, each member of the DT team will be sharing their views, experience, tips and advice on how we all can go about our daily routine with care. You will be getting topics like safety and care in your fitness/sport routine, tips and tricks for kitchen hygiene and important things to consider when preparing lunch boxes and of course our own safety views on Kids in the Kitchen.

We really hope you enjoy the next month with us. For now go out and smell the wonderful blooming blossoms.

PS. Don't forget May 13th is Mother's Day ;-)
