Do Kids Drink Tea?
For anyone who isn't familiar with kids drinking tea, it can sound like a strange concept. Most people think that all teas contain caffeine, and that it is generally made with boiling hot water. Therefore, why would parents want to give their child a boiling hot cup of caffeine.
The reality, just like food straight out of the oven, we can let tea cool down from boiling. There are a whole range of herbal teas that do not have any caffeine and are not only safe for children to drink, but hugely beneficial too!
When I heard about all of the vitamins and minerals that my kids could drink via a cup of yummy tea, I was overjoyed! Tea has been such a huge part of my life growing up, I love the flavour and the ritual itself. I love sitting down with my kids or friends, and enjoying a cup of wholesome tea.
For anyone who still needs convincing, check out this information on just peppermint tea alone:
Peppermint is a good source of manganese, copper and vitamin C. Mint also contains vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B-6, C, E, and K, beta carotene, folate and riboflavin and the minerals calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and manganese. Fresh mint is a powerful antioxidant.
