For the moms that HATE giving OTC cold/flu medicine....

Well here we are again, back to school time and flu season...fun!!! If you are anything like me you HATE giving your children over the counter cold medicine. It tastes nasty, so getting then to actually take it can be one hell of a fight. Then once we have convinced them to take it one of two things happens, they turn into little lethargic zombies OR bounce off the walls until the wee hours of the morning. So a few years ago, after much research I found a WONDERFUL alternative!!! It's all natural, tastes good & no zombie/Energizer bunny side effects!!! It's called Traditional Medicinals and can be found in any grocery store either in the tea section or organic section. They also have a huge variety for adults that I refuse to go without during flu season!!! Here's a picture so you know what to look for. I plan on stocking up when we go grocery shopping this weekend.

 I hate giving my daughters meds cause I'm so paranoid but I got them some highlands all natural cold and flu stuff that worked better than any med they have ever had. And they loved the taste of it lol

My girls are the same way!! They LOVE this stuff though!!! I sometimes stir it with all natural frozen fruit bars for some extra vitamins & fruity flavor!! Also helps cool it off a bit so they can drink it!!!!!!
