Dr. Cocoa Helps Relieve Colds With A Smile

I don’t know about your kids, but mine HATE taking cough and cold medicine. My daughter, who is 11, is so glad that she can swallow pills now because the liquid stuff is just not fun to take at all. My 6 year old son is better about taking it but it’s still hard to get him to take it when it’s needed. Did you know that school aged kids get around 8 to 12 colds per year? Yuck! That’s a lot of germs floating around and these colds can last anywhere from six days to two weeks. Getting kids to take their medication can get them back on their feet faster and back to school faster too. (The common cold accounts for approximately 22 million missed days of school and 20 million absences from work, including time away from work caring for ill children. That’s a LOT of missed days!)

Would your child have an easier time taking their medication if it tasted better? I know mine would! New Dr. Cocoa™ for Children offers a new option. It’s the first-ever chocolate flavored cough and cold medicine line for children. It’s soothing formula is made with effective ingredients and 10% real cocoa for a yummy chocolate taste. Dr. Cocoa™ helps fight the cold (which is a WIN for you!) and tastes great for your kids (a definite WIN for them!)

I remember it was always my daughter that had the most trouble getting the other cough & cold medicine down. There would be times that my husband and I would practically have to hold her down to get her take it because she hated it that much. It was an awful situation for her, awful for us and awful because we never knew if we were getting all of the recommended dosage to her or if she was getting too little. If her medicine would have had a chocolate taste, I know that she would have happily taken it and gotten the correct dosage each and every time.
