Make A Frozen Medicine Lollipop For Kids

Kids don't always (pretty much never) like the taste of medicine, but they love lollipops and icy poles. Swiss Miss came up with the genius idea of making liquid medicine into an ice lollipop. The cold dulls the taste buds, so bitter-tasting medicine will go down easier.

Another alternative is mixing in a little bit of sugar or other sweeter-tasting liquid to dilute the medicine a bit, but if you were going to do that, you probably don't even need to go to the trouble of freezing it.

    If you're going to do this, make sure the medicine is actually safe to freeze.

    Just be careful as many medicines need a certain temperature range to be viable and going outside that range can render them essentially useless. (nice use of a Nespresso capsule btw)

    yeah... 'medicine'...

    (oh I went too far didn't I)

    "Another alternative is mixing in a little bit of sugar or other sweeter-tasting liquid to dilute the medicine a bit"

    Breaking news... something that Mary Poppins taught us almost 50 years ago!

      'a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down...medicine go down...medicine go down'

    I suspect it would be easier to sell a child on the idea of taking the medicine quickly and washing it down with something tasty as opposed to something they have to keep in their mouths for a few minutes while it melts and will probably drop on the floor as soon as your back is turned!
