General Manager, Kellogg Tolaram, Mrs. Vani Malik       said the “programme follows a holistic developmental approach, which begins with making sure children have the best start to their day by getting a complete breakfast option through Kellogg’s various cereal variants while also encouraging them to identify and improve their inherent academic skills in the area of writing.”
