Shweta Jain, founder, Investography, responds:
You have not mentioned the amount you need to meet your goals. Your SIP portfolio could be close to Rs 14 lakh in the next five years. To build a fudn for your child's education, you should invest in debt mutual funds since you have a medium term investment horizon of three years. Start additional SIPs in debt funds for the purpose. I would ask you to avoid thematic funds and mid- and small cap funds, as you don't have a very long investment horizon.
