Tip for Keeping Medicine Doses on Track………

If your toddlers or young children need to take medicine, which is usually in liquid form,  it can be difficult to keep track (did I or didn’t I?, and to whom?), here is an easy  trick to help keep things straight.  Purchase different colours of the plastic weekly pill containers available at all drugstores.  Put a Smartee in each day and when you have given the medicine, give the child a Smartee to ‘ease the pain.’  With a different colour container assigned to each child, it is easier to know who is up to date and who is missed.  If the medicine is yucky tasting, the Smartee takes away the taste.  As Mary Poppins said, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, in a most delightful way” and parents have the assurance that no one was missed or worse, twice dosed!
