Red Bean and Barley Drink. Lately, my daughter has been drinking less water. Also, her urine smells. Therefore, I have been a little concerned. Furthermore, she started a new school with a new environment. Not only that, during recess and lunch she only wants to play, so she has not been drinking as much water. Therefore, I am a very concerned Mom. Alternately, to encourage her I started a point system. If she finishes her water bottle at school, I would give one point. Also, I cooked red bean and barley drinks for her.
