Appetite boosting tea
“My 5-year-old child have always had a poor appetite. The elders advised me to let him drink the appetite stimulating tea that can be commonly found in the market. Do they really help?”
CheckCheckCin: If a child is experiencing prolonged loss of appetite, reduced food intake, or having lesser appetite when compared to other normal children of the same age, without the symptoms of abdominal distension and foul-smelling stool etc., the child is said to be showing signs of anorexia. One can prepare millet sprout and malt tea as remedy to condition the body and improve appetite. Millet sprout and malt are effective in promoting digestion, strengthening the spleen and stimulating appetite.
In conjunction with the tea therapy, it is advisable to have smaller but more frequent meals, and proceed to stimulate the appetite using the child’s favorite food. An increase in the variety of food or dishes can help to stimulate the child’s appetite. Be careful not to snack before meals as that may affect the child’s appetite for the actual meal itself. But remember not to force the child into eating, otherwise all the efforts might backfire.
Besides, do take note that the recent muggy weather may affect appetite as well, so it is alright for the child to have one to two meals less than usual. Before taking any ready-made appetite stimulating tea, please check the ingredients. If parents are unsure whether the child is suitable to take the tea, please consult a registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner.
