The rooibos tea will not increase your son's appetite. The question is why is he eating so poorly at his age? He may be getting his molar teeth or there may be some other reason for his poor appetite.It is a pity that you did not include his weight with your information here.If your are concerned about him and his weight is not what it should be, it would be best to ask your doctor to see him.
