"I try to make eating fun and interesting. For instance, I tell them broccoli looks like a tree, so they think they are eating trees," Karisma, mother of Samaira, 8, and Kiaan Raj Kapoor, 3, said.
Her motto is to give healthy food to her children, who also don't make a fuss. Karisma doesn't follow a food chart, but likes to keep her plate colourful.
"We eat regular dishes like rice, vegetables and continental cuisine. I like to have colours on my plate. I love different colours of capsicum and also salad," she said.
When asked about her favourite grocery store she said, "I love going to the Godrej Nature's Basket store in Bandra. The health food section has lots of varieties."
Along with diet, Karisma also gives importance to workouts. What's more, her daughter also joins her at times.
"I am not a gym person. I prefer walking or doing yoga. When I do yoga, my daughter joins me whenever she can," she said.
Although she professes to a healthy diet, Karisma confesses that she over-indulges in food during celebrations or while holidaying.
"After a good vacation or festivals, I put on some weight because we eat a lot. I generally like to wear black. I slip into loose tops with pants or a salwar kameez at that time," said Karisma, who defines her style as sophisticated and chic.
