PediaCare Medicine Giveaway

Statistics show that preschool-aged children have around nine colds per year, Kindergarteners can have 12 colds per year and adolescents have about seven colds per year.  Are you ever confused about what cold/flu medicines are safe for your children?

The trusted brand for children, PediaCare, has just launched an expanded line of safe and effective medicines.  Available with and without acetaminophen — for children and infants — the medicines address most sick-child situations:  cough, cold, allergy, flu, congestion, fever and pain.

Product offerings, in kid-pleasing flavors, match the formulations of other recalled brands and are arriving in stores just in time for the cold/flu season.  Here in our home, it was determined that the products still tasted like ‘medicine’ but the grape flavor masked it pretty well, the cherry did a decent job but wasn’t liked as much.

In particular, PediaCare Infant and Children’s fever and pain reducers are a great solution for moms wanting a branded acetaminophen alternative.

To help parents decide which medicine is best for their child, PediaCare is launching a free iPhone application that will help determine which product is best based on the symptoms their child needs relief of.  (The iPhone application is not a diagnostic tool but rather for informational purposes only and it does not constitute medical diagnosis/information.)  The new iPhone application will launch early October and be available for free download at

Availability:  PediaCare products retail for approximately $6.99 for a 4 oz. bottle and are available at drugstores, supermarkets and retailers nationwide.
