I have tried the old fashioned method of stopping hiccups,by letting my child with hiccups ,drink water out of the wrong side of the glass.But it doesn't work sometime.Another common belief is holding the breathe for a few minutes.
I like to share a tip on how to stop hiccups using food.
Take a slice of lemon and dip it in hot water.Take the lemon out of the water and sprinkle on it sugar,salt and black pepper.The lemon should be sucked until the hiccups stop.

My youngest had to do a class project.It was about germination.So I asked if how I could help him.I was so proud of him when he very carefully told me step by step what I should do to germinate some seeds.So with his guidance ,I planted some mustards seeds in a cantainer with some soiled cotton. The pictures above are the results after a couple of days. He even said that it looks good to make a salad out of it.

It was too hot and stuffy inside the house and we decided to go the mall just to feel relaxed and get a bit of fresh air.The mall was so big that I was afraid the children would get lost if I didn't keep monitoring them closely.While walking leisurely and in our own pace,I spotted this candy bar in the centre of the long broad avenues within the mall.It was beautiful set. There were an assortment of candies,in a variety of colours assembled inside neat and tiny cubicles. Luckily I had my digital camera in my bag .To the amusement of the candy store keeper,I started clicking pictures.

Fruits come in different shapes , sizes and colours. They give us a healthy body when taken adequately.Eating fruits and drinking the juice extracted from them keep our skin glowing and in good condition.The Fruit my children like to eat and drink are oranges.They are greatly appreciated on a hot summer afternoon. Oranges are best,when taken in the form of juice.It tastes so delicious.It is a wonderful drink to quench our thirst. An orange punch with a lot of crushed ice will keep one cool and refreshing. Oranges are loaded with Vitamin C. It is a good source of calcium ,beta carotene,magnesium and folic. It lowers cholesterol, prevents diabetics and high blood pressure. It is also good for those having respiratory problems like asthma,bronchitis and pneumonia. Is n't it beneficial to make oranges a part of our daily diet!
