Being a parent is indeed a special feeling but being promoted to grandparents in an unmatched feeling. The warmth and unconditional love with which grandparents shower their grandchildren with is what helps a child shape his/her personality. The life lessons, anecdotes and experiences that grandparents share with their little ones help them deal with the highs and lows of life. And the happiness any grandparent has on their face while watching their grandchildren is the most beautiful feeling in the world! Raveena Tandon Thadani is one such ‘glam-ma’, who prefers staying updated every day on how her little grandson is doing!

At the mere age of 21, Raveena Tandon Thadani had embraced motherhood when she had adopted her late cousin's daughters. Raveena had become a single mother to Chhaya and Pooja through adoption and had later welcomed her biological kids, Ranbirvardhan Thadani and Rasha Thadani post her marriage with Anil Thadani. On September 2019, Raveena had gotten promoted as she had become a grandmother when Chhaya had embraced motherhood for the first time.
Due to the lockdown, Raveena Tandon Thadani isn't able to meet her grandson but she is making sure to video call her daughter, Chhaya Malaney and asking her how the little one is doing. Recalling her reaction on being told that she's going to be a grandma, Raveena shared in an interview with Zoom Digital, "There’s nothing better than to hold a new life in your hands. I was gleaming with joy. Throughout Chhaya’s pregnancy, I have constantly shared advises - what she should be eating, how she should be exercising, etc. I still do it. I take an update every day, and my day is not complete without seeing him. I video call my daughter every day and ensure that the baby gets proper sleep, diet and baby massage."
Revealing how difficult it was to inculcate healthy eating habits in her kids, Raveena Tandon Thadani spilt some tricks she had used on them. Sharing the tips and tricks she had used while her kids were growing up, Raveena said, "I used to try a lot of things to give my kiddos a fun and healthy food experience, like make broccoli smoothie, colorful sandwiches. One thing I have learned is that kids want their food to look presentable, for them to even try it. So I used to make the food look colorful with veggies, or make fruit milkshakes, and serve fruit salads. Kids today are picky about what they eat and as moms, it becomes challenging when it comes to ensuring essential nutrients in our child’s diet. When it comes to food, it needs to be loved by kids and approved by moms." (Also Read: Soha Ali Khan Shares A Glimpse Of Her Angel, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu Intently Engrossed In Her Book)
