I think parents of young children understand–and fear–cold season more than anyone else. After all, school-age kids get an average of 8-12 colds each year, and colds generally last between 6 days and 2 weeks!
It also bears noting that we're definitely in “cold season” right now. It's considered to last from September through April, and it's not a coincidence that those are the months that kids are definitely in school.
There have definitely been seasons where it feels like both of my kids maxed out their allowed days for having a cold. On top of crankiness, the runny noses and coughing, I also had to deal with finicky kids who didn't always take their cold medication without a fight.
At this very moment I'm knocking on wood because we've hardly had a sniffle in our home over the past few months. No, my kids don't have superhero-like immune systems. We just started homeschooling this fall so they haven't had the frequent exposure to other kids and their germs like they had in years past.
I'm not fooling myself, though. I know the time of cough and colds is coming. But this year, I'm prepared with a new and better-tasting cough and cold medicine.
Dr. Cocoa for Children is the first chocolate flavored OTC liquid cough and cold medicine intended for children between the ages of 4 and 13.
Dr. Cocoa for Children is available in three patented formulas:
- Dr. Cocoa Long-Acting Cough Relief: Relieves coughs for up to eight hours without drowsiness. Made for children ages 4-13.
- Dr. Cocoa Daytime Cough + Cold Relief: Relieves stuffy nose and cough. It's a non-drowsy formula. Made for children ages 4-13.
- Dr. Cocoa Nighttime Cough + Cold Relief: Made for children ages 6-13 to relieve cough, stuffy nose, runny nose and sneezing at night.
Why use Dr. Cocoa for Children? In a new national study of US parents with children ages 4-13, 40% say it isn't always easy to give their child OTC liquid cough and cold medicine.
Of those parents surveyed, one third of parents believe the taste of the medicine impacts the ease of giving their child medication.
In response to this, Dr. Cocoa for Children is a cough and cold medicine with patented formulas and familiar effective active ingredients like Dextromethorphan and Phenylephrine (see package for exact ingredients, contents and dosing). These formulas are combined with 10% real cocoa for great chocolate taste to make children's medication easier to administer.
