When E was younger, giving her any type of medicine was a piece of cake! Now that she’s older, not so much. She’s very picky when it comes to flavor and sometimes it feels like a never ending battle getting her to take medicine when she’s not well!
E was actually quite sick right around the holidays. She was coughing and very congested. All I wanted to do is be able to give her some relief of her symptoms but we had such a hard time getting her to take an over the counter children’s cough and cold! She hated the flavor and we even went as far as purchasing another flavor but she still refused. We bribed and battled with her but even when she did finally give in, she refused to take the full dose. I wish we had some Dr. Cocoa™ for Children Cough + Cold at the time!
Dr. Cocoa™ for Children 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. Dr. Cocoa™ for Children comes in three patented formulas:
- Dr. Cocoa™ Long-Acting Cough Relief: relieves coughs for up to eight hours without causing drowsiness in children ages 4-13 (active ingredient: Dextromethorphan). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.
- Dr. Cocoa™ Daytime Cough + Cold Relief: relieves stuffy nose and cough for children ages 4-13. Its non-drowsy formula makes it ideal for daytime use (active ingredients: Dextromethorphan and Phenylephrine). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.
- Dr. Cocoa™ Nighttime Cough + Cold Relief: Made especially for children ages 6-13 to relieve coughs, along with stuffy nose, runny nose and sneezing at night (active ingredients: Diphenhydramine, Phenylephrine). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.
I feel that most kids like the taste of chocolate, I know E does! Did you know that 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? I don’t know about you but I can relate to that! Of those surveyed, one third of parents believe the taste of the medicine impacts how easy it is to give their child the medicine. I have to agree with those parents!
School age kids get around eight to twelve colds per year that can last anywhere from six days to two weeks! Prepare for those times when your kids get sick with Dr. Cocoa™ for Children.
