in japan kids typically drink: mugi-cha kuromame-cha hoji-cha all are caffeine free. my daughter is almost 2 and loves them all, as well as chamomile and rooibos teas.try an asian grocery?

skewers with cucumber, cheese, apples etc on
cold somen noodles (japanese super thin wheat noodles) with blanched brocoli , drizzled with soy sauce and sesame paste. and a peach.
