A traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) session for children was held at the Chinese Charity Museum in Nantong, Jiangsu province on July 28.

The activity was aimed at promoting the time-honored medical culture among the younger generation.

Bao Yunwen, a pharmacist from a local TCM hospital, was invited to teach children about various herbs and guide them in creating plum syrup, or suanmeitang in Chinese, which is a widely consumed treat during summer in China.
