If you are like me, you hate seeing your child sick. Just this past weekend our oldest had a 24- hour stomach bug and it wasn’t pretty. All I ever want to do when my kids aren’t feeling well is take care of them, and that includes helping them feel better. It is hard to get a good night’s rest when you are up all night coughing. Most of the time, a cold simply have to run its course. But that doesn’t mean I can’t help to alleviate the symptoms, especially since they can last for a long time.
Unfortunately, cough and cold medicine isn’t always easy to convince my kids to drink. If they don’t like the flavor they will avoid it, complain or even cry about it. As a parent, I want to avoid this struggle completely, which is why I’m really intrigued to try Dr. Cocoa™ for Children. This is the first-ever cough and cold medicine for children with patented formulas combining trusted, effective ingredients with 10% real cocoa for great chocolate taste to make giving medicine to kids easier.
And apparently, I’m not alone.
In a new national survey of U.S. parents of school-aged children (ages 4-13), 40% say that they find it isn’t always easy to give their child(ren) over-the-counter liquid cough and cold medicine. Of those surveyed, one third of parents believe the taste of the medicine impacts how easy it is to give their child the medicine. Dr. Cocoa™ can help parents fight the cold, not the child.
