I am very conscious about what my children eat, and try to keep their foods wholesome, organic, and balanced. I’m not a food snob, and I know that some days they will put up a fight about healthy foods, and others we will not have organic options around, but for the most part, I try to keep chemicals out of their diet as much as possible. Why should this be any different when they are sick? I have a great relationship with my kid’s pediatrician, and we both believe that less is more when it comes to children and illnesses. He is not quick to give antibiotics unless it’s absolutely necessary, and when it comes to colds and fevers, we can both agree that artificial dyes and colors really shouldn’t be included in children’s medicine.
Whenever I choose pain and fever relief for my kids, I always go for dye free formula. I never knew that the reason for dye free formulas was to prevent staining if a child spit out their medicine. I always thought it was for parents like me who try to avoid dyes as much as possible. I learned about Little Remedies products when my first baby had her first fever. Little Remedies is a company with values that are in line with my own; their products use as few ingredients as possible, and are free of alcohol, dyes, and colors. We were fond of their saline mist/drops, gas relief, and fever reducer, but when I had my second baby it seemed that their product line expanded. I could be totally wrong – all these products may have been on the shelves all this time, but I’ve just started noticing more Little Remedies products this past year.
When it comes to colds, coughs, and sore throats, my mom would always mix honey with lemon. To this day, she swears by this concoction and it seems that the rest of the world is starting to catch on. Little Remedies for Colds Honey Elixir is a NATURAL cough syrup. It is for children over 12 months old and doesn’t contain artificial colors, flavors, or alcohol. If your little one also has body aches, teething pain, or fever, also consider Little Remedies Infant Fever/Pain Reliever Acetaminophen.
The only way to prevent cold/flu this season is to wash your hands frequently and take caution when you are in public places. If your children do get sick, Little Remedies has products that can help relieve symptoms. To find out more, visit Little Remedies.
Before using Little Remedies products, please consult with your pediatrician.
