Hi kady,

you can try popular. Remember seeing one where they have the recipies using dates/gouqizi/shanyao etc for toddlers.

They also explained what the recipe is good for (e.g. some good for phelgm, some for boosting appetite etc).

cheers

Hi, Kady. You are doing too much to add any of those TCM things to a baby. There is no any formal proof of positive effects, but quite some negative effects (that TCM supporter chose to close their eyes).

Just give balanced meals and that is all a baby needs. All the bests.

erm.. i think you should only add these with the advice of the Doctor.. 1 yr old is really very young.. My MIL used to make me add all these to my kids' porridge, and kept having fever and falling sick.. so I stopped, and I find that they are actually ok just with nutritious food. :)
