Children's tea: brew by the rules

Experts believe that tea should be introduced into the child’s diet after 1 year. The fact is that in the composition of this drink is caffeine, which can act on the crumbs of exciting, and tannin, which, if you overdo it, complicates the absorption of iron. But older kids will certainly benefit from tea.

After all, it is good for quenching thirst and contains many biologically active components that are necessary for a growing organism.

The invigorating effect of the drink is due to the presence of caffeine in it. Most of it is found in green and red (for example, varieties of carcade) tea – from 60 to 120 mg in one cup.

In the same amount of black tea, caffeine is present in an amount of 40–70 mg. But if you brew white tea, then in one cup there will be only 5 mg of the exciting ingredient. But it should be borne in mind that the leaves of the latter are subjected to the least processing, because of which they contain a lot of extractive substances, which, passing into the finished drink, can impede the process of digestion in a child.

For these reasons, pediatricians and nutritionists recommend choosing traditional black tea for the crumbs.

When choosing black tea varieties, give preference to decaffeinated ones, where the caffeine content is minimal. The baby is given this drink no more than 1‒2 times a day, and in the morning or in the afternoon, so that before going to sleep the crumb is not overwhelmed.

Children’s tea should be weak. Peanut is brewed in a separate teapot at the rate of 0.5 g of dry tea leaf per 150-200 ml of water.

In this case, the drink should not be hot, but rather warm enough. To make it tastier, you can add half a slice of lemon or fresh mint.

Doctors advise giving your baby tea without sugar. Do not worry: the crumb will not turn up a nose from unsweetened drink.

The range of products that make it attractive is quite wide.

If desired, sweeten and enhance the taste of tea by adding a spoonful of honey. If the child does not have allergies, it will not harm his health. In addition, this drink is good for colds and is able to recuperate. The taste and aroma of tea will also enrich the fresh berries or apple slices.

You can use raspberry leaves, currants, strawberries, chamomile flowers.

Herbal teas are recommended for babies to quench their thirst and normalize digestion. The components of medicinal plants that are used in them contain the nutrients necessary for the development of the child.

So, teas with extracts of chamomile, lemon balm, fennel, anise are used in intestinal colic and to regulate metabolism.
