Soup to promote growth
“How can we grow taller?” This is a question parents and children would often ask. Height might be hereditary, but we can expect better growth if our children have a healthier diet, exercise appropriately and get enough sleep.
Teenage girls usually experience their first menstruation at about the age of 14, grow wisdom teeth at the age of 21 or so, and this marks the end of their growth period; as for boys, they would hit puberty at about the age of 16, and develop wisdom teeth at the age of 24. It is at this point they will stop growing taller. As parents, we need to observe the children’s growth period closely, and take care of their spleen, stomach and kidney.
In order to do so, eat an appropriate amount of foods that are beneficial for the spleen and stomach, for instance, Chinese yam, white hyacinth bean, barley, lotus seed, sweet potato and potato; consume less raw and cold food, as that can hurt the spleen and stomach.
The qi in kidney and growth have a close interdependent relationship. Sleeping late will damage the kidney; therefore, it is vital to sleep early. Do consume an appropriate amount of food that can replenish the kidney, such as black sesame, black fungus, black bean, black-bone chicken, as well as nuts such as walnut, peanut, pistachio, and chestnut.
Tips for soup to strengthen spleen and nourish kidneys:
Appropriately add in spleen strengthening ingredients such as hyacinth bean, coix seed, lotus seed, potato, and kidney nourishing ingredients such as black fungus, walnut, black chicken etc.
