Tips on Giving Essiac Tea to Children:

Be sure to give essiac on an empty stomach. That means no food 2 hours before or 1 hour after the essiac dose. However, you can add fruit or vegetable juice (all natural, no sugar added juice) to the essiac. You can also add a squeeze of lemon or stevia to the tea. Be sure to serve the tea cold (do not re-heat).

Most children will not like essiac the first time. However, if they try it a few times most take it just fine. Please encourage them to take it in spite of the taste. Reassure them that they will get used to it and maybe even grow to crave it very soon.
