Helpful things to get your kids through cold season!

Keep Colds at Bay with Natural / Homeopathic Products!

Hyland's Cold Relief with Zinc 4 Kids, 0.058333333 Boxes (Pack of 8)It's definitely that time of year - back to school, cold/windy drab days, exhausted from holiday travel... worn down immune system!  Here are some more natural things to help relieve and prevent those nasty winter colds:

When the cold symptoms start showing up I give my kids Hyland's Cold Relief with Zinc Quick disolving strips.  They are low dose and safe enough for ages 2 and up and easy to give to even the most defiant of toddlers as you just need to get the small very thin strip onto their tongue - it melts away really quickly too!  My kids actually like these a lot so it's not a problem...  I've tried them too and they don't really have much flavor but they don't taste like medicine at all.  I buy them in bulk because we go through the boxes pretty quickly during each cold.  Amazon's price for 8 -is around $5 / box which is much cheaper than I have seen anywhere else.

Yummi Bears Multi-Vitamin & Mineral, 200-Count Gummy BearsI am a firm believer in taking multi-vitamins everyday and Yummi Bears makes it fun for the little ones!  These lower-dose fun bear-shaped gummies have great flavor (I've tried these myself too!) and the kids really get excited to take them - even my 2 year old!  Does Not Contain: Yeast, wheat, milk, egg, soy, glutens, salt, artificial colors, artificial flavors, salicylates or preservatives.  At $15.81 for a 200 count bottle ($0.07/gummy) this price is fantastic!  Click here for More Products by Yummi Bears

Cleanwell All-Natural Hand Sanitizer, Pocket Size, 1-Ounce Spray Bottles (Pack of 6)Germs spread from hands touching germ-filled objects then touching kids mouths are one of the leading causes of colds.  Keep germs at bay with Clean Well Natural Hand Sanitizer.  When you can't wash your hands, these pocket-sized spray bottles do the trick - Naturally!  I absolutely love this product and carry the small bottles in my purse, backpack, diaperbags, stroller pouch and have one at the office too!  The scent is a little woodsy but what I really love is that they don't leave your hands tasting of alcohol like most hand sanitizers.  At $11.00 for a six pack ($1.87 / oz) this is a great price for germ / cold prevention!
