- We have a hard time getting our children to take oral medications. Two of our kids are especially sensitive to taste and texture. Here are some ideas I have tried in the past to get them to take their medicine. Our pharmacist was impressed by one and was going to recommend it to her other customers. LOL
Mix with 1 to 2 ML of juice, koolaid, etc.
Mix with ice cream or yogurt.
Mix with chocolate, strawberry, or caramel syrup.
Mix with Jell-O, pudding, or applesauce.
***Please check with your pharmacist first to make sure there will not be any kind of reaction between the medicine and the food item. We have not run across that problem yet. If you have any other ideas, please share them with us!
