How you can make propolis tasty for your child
A healthy and balanced diet plan is important at any age. Children in particular, whose physical and mental development is progressing rapidly, must eat a balanced and healthy diet.
The fact that children eat a balanced and healthy diet influences every aspect of their lives, from their personal happiness to their success at school. However, foods that are healthy for children may not always taste good. As parents know, many children are more interested in unhealthy but tasty ready meals than in healthy foods.
This is a major risk for mothers who want to feed their growing children healthy and natural foods.
Natural foods such as propolis, royal jelly, raw honey, pollen and bee bread made through the collaboration of nature and bees can be a healthy and nutritious natural alternative for your child.
Propolis is used by bees to seal their hives and protect against bacteria, viruses and fungi.

How can we make propolis tasty for children?
How your child perceives the taste or smell of propolis actually depends on the actions you take. In this regard, children are often influenced by their parents.
If you make bad comments about food in front of your child, your child will insist on not consuming that food. Therefore, if you want to make propolis popular with your child, you should give the right guidance.
Proper action would be to explain the health benefits of propolis to your child instead of talking about the taste and smell of propolis and other bee products.
Administer in gradual and small amounts
When administering propolis for the first time, start incrementally and administer according to the daily consumption amount on the product. The dosage of propolis is different for each product. Therefore, it is important to stick to the daily recommended amount.
You can increase the daily dosage after your child slowly gets used to propolis. On the first day you can, for example, drop 1 drop of the propolis tincture 10% water-soluble into the juice and administer it. The next day you can increase the amount of drops by another 2-3 drops.
