  • Let’s pledge to have a Sweet-Smart start to the New Year

Harvest festivities are in full swing in various parts of the country. People in the north are celebrating Lohri by gathering around the fire with offerings for a bountiful harvest. In the west, people are celebrating Makar Sankranti by praying to the Sun God for prosperity. Similarly, in the south & eastern parts of India, festivals like Pongal, Bihu, Uttarayan, and Makaravilakku are being observed with hopeful reservations for abundant crops and nourishment. What ties all these festivals together are the sweet delicacies which remain at the centre of every celebration. All of which can be made perfectly healthy when you choose to #BeSweetSmart using I’m lite. Let’s show you what we mean using four of our top favourites:
