IMG_2675

Kids can eat a variety of different types and colors of fruits and veggies in season to get a balanced diet and good health. Food is medicine. Kids in Asia have been drinking ginger tea as a treatment for colds and flu for centuries. Ginger is a natural remedy for many ailments and has been proven even more effective for upset stomach, heartburn, dizziness, and pain relief than over the counter medicines. The most researched symptoms on the internet are by frantic parents looking to stop nausea and vomiting in infants and kids. Kids love ground ginger as a delicious spice in gingerbread cookies. Sweet pickled ginger is traditionally served with sushi to cleanse the palette and aid digestion. Ginger increases circulation and decreases inflammation. Fresh ginger is delicious grated or minced in main dishes, added to sauces, and in hot and cold beverages. Kids love this refreshing ginger lemonade made with 1 tbsp grated fresh organic ginger, 2 tbsp fresh squeezed organic lemon juice, 1 tsp organic maple syrup, and 1 cup of filtered water, as ginger is also a mood enhancer and stress reliever.
