U can also soak Amla in mixture of salt,turmeric and water. They will taste really good. Give to kids while watching television or playing or studying , 2 per day. Daily dosage of rich nutrients will reach them. My girl eats daily 2.

Super! Even though we know how great these herbs are, the difficult bit is to figure out how to include them in childrens' diet. thanks for the recipes. Also would like to add here - Cooking, heat, light and temperature changes significantly destroy the Vitamin C content of foods, however the vitamin C in Amla is heat stable and does not get destroyed with exposure to heat.
