Children’s Liquid Medicine Dosing In the News

Posted December 1st, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

As you know, we developed KidKupz to not only help children “take the ick out of sick”® and chase away the harsh taste of liquid medications,  but also to help parents ensure their child is always getting the proper dosage.  That is why KidKupz are made using standardized dosage cups with clearly marked measurements – no room for error and the cups can be used with ANY liquid medications.

Clearly, The Journal of the American Medical Association supports our concerns.  Here is the JAMA study, released yesterday.  Important reading for all parents and caregivers.

“ Evaluation of Consistency in Dosing Directions and Measuring Devices for Pediatric Nonprescription Liquid Medications

Also, here is the video from WABC and the esteemed Dr. Jay Adlersberg.

Posted October 19th, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

We’ve all heard the buzz about what are considered to be the top “super foods.” These are the foods that offer the greatest health benefits and needless to say, none of them are found at McDonalds. It certainly isn’t news that our kids need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but what may be news to you is that there are certain foods that can actually benefit our childrens’ developing brains.

“Turn Off TV Week?”

Posted October 7th, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

I guess I’m finding out a bit late that this week is officially, “National Turn Off TV Week” but better late than never. The phrase itself is unimaginable to many of our children, and if we’re being honest, to us grown-ups, too. Read the rest of this entry »

It Seems Mary Poppins Was Only Half-Right…

Posted October 5th, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

Re-thinking Those School Fundraisers

Posted September 21st, 2010 by Jill Addeo | No Comments »

Before I was married or had children, I lived in an apartment building in Manhattan and the building was chock full of families with school age children. One of the most memorable benefits I reaped from being around all of these kids was the ability to stock up on cookies when Girl Scout Season rolled around. I stocked up like no body’s business, for purely selfish reasons, and as a result became popular with the kids. However, as the old saying goes, “No good deed goes unpunished.” Read the rest of this entry »
