Hi Everyone,

My name is Jill and I am the Founder of KidKupz as well as a mother of 2 young children. I’m so pleased that you have taken the time to visit our site and I just wanted to take a minute to welcome you and to introduce myself.

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to read our story, my mom and I came up with the idea for KidKupz after hearing about the struggles that my step-father was witnessing as a volunteer in the pediatric wing of a NY cancer hospital. He shared many stories with us about how difficult it was for these sick children to have to swallow one harsh tasting medicine after another. He wished for a way to make it easier for them and ultimately, my mom and I developed Kidkupz. We devised a special process to coat the FDA approved, standard dosing cups with a 100% naturally flavored candy coating.

What makes KidKupz truly unique as compared to other flavoring products on the market is that our goal is not to mask the harsh taste of liquid medications, but rather to instantly chase that harsh taste away — much like giving your child a sip of juice or a bite of something sweet afterwards.

We realize that there are plenty of moms and dads whose kids have no trouble taking their liquid medicines and of course that’s the best case scenario. But for those of us who struggle, we have found that giving kids some choices of fun colors and fruity flavors provides not only a tasty treat, but also gives them a sense of control in the midst of an often unpleasant process.

You may find a lot more helpful information and answers to some of your other questions on our FAQ page. And, please continue to checkout my blog! I will try and keep you up to date about what’s going on with Kidkupz and I hope to be able to pass along my observations and insights as we begin on this journey with this exciting new product.
