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.

Chamomile Tea For Toddlers
The question isn’t can toddlers drink chamomile tea but, WILL kids drink chamomile tea? I don’t know about you 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.

The banana is a good solution. 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 sleepytime 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.
