It has been a long time that I want to mention about this topic in my blog. I keep procrastinating as I am quite '
April and May's Paediatrician(PD) is in Hospital Columbia Asia. When both my kids were less about 3 years old, they get cough, phlegm and running nose often. They both were on Singulair, Ventolin and Seretide inhaler before. They also got the nebuliser a few times in the hospital when their cough and phlegm were too serious.
That time, I forbid them to take cold drink, ice and ice-cream, and I strictly watched over their diet.
Their last visit to the PD was in May 2010. Within these 9 months, they only got mild flu or mild fever once or twice. I gave them the flu medicine and paracetamol that I kept at home.
I am certainly happy to witness the improvement in their immune system and general well being. Here, I would like to share what I give them as their supplement, and I believe it improve my kids' health.
I feed them one big table spoon of the Scott's Emulsion after meal, and I make them a glass of honey every day too.
On weekends, I boil them Chrysanthemum tea, or Barley, or Loh Han Guo drink.
Other than the above mentioned supplement, I also believe a well-balanced diet and plenty of fluid daily are essential to maintain the kids' health. I am not forgetting to give them fruit as snack in between meals.
I have started to allow my girls to enjoy some cold drinks and ice-cream, especially on hot weather.
So, during this CNY, whenever I prayed, I only wish for good health and harmony for my family, and nothing else.
And Today is the Valentine's Day, Happy Valentine's to all of you.
