I just got over a summer cold and I didn’t like it one bit.  I dread the day when one of my kids gets another cold.  The sleepless nights, tissues everywhere, the visions of germs on every surface in the house.. yuck!  It’s no fun when anyone has a cold, especially a child who doesn’t understand how to blow her own nose.  While it’s usually recommended that children under 4 not take medication for colds, you can certainly use remedy’s 1, 3, 4, and 5.

Kids-Eeze Cold RemediesHere are a remedies for the summer cold should you need them:

1) Make sure you drink a lot of Vitamin C. Vitamin C will help shorten the length of a cold. Try drinking cold drinks such as orange juice or grapefruit juice

2) Pick up a pack Kids-EEZE soft chews. They target coughs and sinus congestion, the main symptoms of a cold or hay fever.  It comes in delicious summer flavors like grape!

3) Try using a humidifier. These are great in the summer time because they do not add any additional heat to the room and it cleanses the air.

4) Honey is one of the best remedies if you’re having a sore throat along with a cold. Try adding honey to every day meals such as pancakes or to your ice tea.

Moms.. this one is for you too..

5) Get plenty of rest. Whether you are sick or not, a good night’s sleep will always improve a person’s overall health.
