    Heat

    Hi

    Can someone tell me what sort of food i shud give to my little one to ward off the heat?
    He is 22 months old and seems to be pretty uncomfortable with the heat.He is developing rashes on his face.
    I know Yogurtand fruit juices are good.What abt icecream?
    Does egg produce heat in the body?



    Thanku for ur time,guys!

    Hi Engee,
    I just got tip-off from my HK friend that replace the water in your child formula with barley water. Tried that and worked for my 2 kids. Hope that will work for you too. Occasionally, I give the barley drink (barley boil with wintermelon sugar?? something like that) for the whole family.

    Like to hear what other moms have to say as well...

    Barley water is one alternatives. Trying brewing carrots, waterchestnuts, sugarcane & 'mao gan' which can be bought from wet markets or Wellcome/Parknshop which are ready-packed. I brewed this once or twice a wk for my toddler son as he also gets heat rashes when the weather gets too hot & humid.

    Barley = "Ee mi" in chinese. But got to pronounce it with the right tone as each chinese word has 4 tones. I should think those chinese dried food shop can understand it in English. My friend gave me Premium barley. The price is almost 3x of that of normal quality that we seen in general shop. Not sure what the "PREMIUM" has to offer other than being looks better (may be it give a thick broth with just a small amount of barley as compare to those normal quality?). Anyone?
