Can kids drink chamomile tea? This sleepytime tea for kids is a great alternative.

You know what’s crazy about summer? It’s light outside until 9 or 10 pm! At least it is where I live. And here I am trying to get my little ones to go to bed at 7, and they are like, but it’s afternoon outside… why are we going to bed?

My oldest has ENERGY! She can run around all day, and still be running around when we’re trying to get ready for bed. If I could just harness that energy, I could probably pay our electric bills for the month.

So the question is, how can I get her to calm down? Well, there are all sorts of methods on google, but today I’m sharing with you an easy drink that is calming and relaxing.

Okay, so we all know chamomile tea is great for bedtime right? But my kids aren’t going to just drink a glass of chamomile tea. Frankly, I have a hard time drinking a glass of straight chamomile tea. You could add honey (let’s not add straight sugar right before bed okay? It may negate the soothing chamomile!), but I wanted to try something different to make a bedtime tea for kids.

The banana. Magnesium, potassium, and some other cool stuff in bananas, apparently, make it sleep friendly. I’m not going to get into the details here, but it’s true, so just trust me. Naturally sweet, and naturally good for you. Win win!

I don’t serve the bedtime tea for kids every night, because I’m way too lazy for that. But on occasion, I like to make this drink and wind down with the kids while reading a book with them. Doesn’t that sound nice? I always make some for myself too! It’s simple, easy, healthy, and yummy. And hopefully it’ll help your kids go to sleep. Be sure to check out some of my other tea recipes as well!
