When you or your little one wakes up with an achy body, sore throat or a congestion, first thing that comes to your mind is: What can I do to make him feel better? A few time-trusted home remedies can help (but please get a doctor’s opinion first if you have any concerns).
Feel-better ideas for both kids and adults:
- get a lot of rest
- sweat it out and boost your immunity
- drink lots of hot liquids like hot tea with honey and lemon and homemade chicken soup with garlic and veggies
2 cups fresh or frozen vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, corn), chopped to small pcs
3 medium-size red potatoes, chopped to small pcs
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon oregano, fresh or dried, chopped
1. Add all chicken pieces including bones and skin to large pot, add salt.
Cool soup down and pour into a plastic container with a tight lid, store in your freezer. When ready to use, thaw soup in room temperature or on slow heat in a medium-size pot. Serve hot, garnished with chopped cilantro or parsley. You cal also add fresh chopped garlic based on your taste-optional.
Baby food idea:
Cool soup down and drain some broth according to your preferred consistence of baby food. Blend with hand blender and store in sterilized 4oz or 6oz glass jars. If you are planning to use the soup as baby food for a baby younger one year, refrain from using salt-see below references.
