This Iced Tea Chia Fresca is surprisingly popular with kids, but here are some options for resistant eaters:
Be sure to use an herbal, naturally decaffeinated tea. Mint is a great option, as is hibiscus.
If your child is a fan of the color pink, definitely brew up some bright pink hibiscus tea. In our house it's called "princess bubble tea," Enough said.
Add a little extra honey if your child likes a sweeter drink.
Omit the lemon if he or she doesn't like sour flavors.
