Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
As she is 5 years old, one tsf. will not cause any side effect.
If it is needed, we prescribe it for this age group too.
Usually as OTC we avoid below 6 years.
I would advise not to worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.
