I remember when I was a kid, I used to be sickly and a frequent visitor in the hospital. I hated drinking medicines because then, they all tasted yucky and made me vomit. A time came when I had to pretend I drank them religiously but my dad caught me hiding the meds in a secret pocket under the huge Narra wooden table.
When I became a mom, of course my fears included repeating the same situations and mistakes but luckily, medicines and supplements these days have different flavors to suit the children’s taste buds. I’m glad the pharmaceutical companies thought of this brilliant idea of making flavored syrups especially. I can’t say the same with most tablets and capsules though but happy that my teenage son can take the awful taste.
