'The right utensils, the right plates and the right glasses can make all the difference to your skin, immunity and even your digestion.

'Here are the 3 things that I would recommend you bring out and why -

1. Iron kadhai and tava -- for making sabzi and rotis -- improved Hb and lesser tiredness. Especially for kids and anyone with poor skin and hair health.

2. Pital (brass) pots - for making dals and khichdis - for improved taste and digestion.

3. Silver or Kansa plates/glasses -- to eat food and drink water -- proven antimicrobial properties and known for boosting immunity.'
