It Seems Mary Poppins Was Only Half-Right…

When my mother and I first created KidKupz, our main objective was to make taking liquid medications easier for children while at the same time making the job easier on moms, dads and caregivers.  Having spoken with many pediatricians and health care professionals, we were also concerned with another of aspect of administering liquid medications. We wanted to help ensure that children were receiving the proper dosage of their medication and that each dose was being taken in full. That is the reason behind our clearly marked dosage Kupz with standard, easy to read measurements.

We interviewed lots of moms who told us the many different concoctions they would create and mix with liquid medicines, including chocolate syrup and applesauce. The problem with this approach is that you can’t be sure your child is getting the complete dose if the medicine is mixed in with a larger portion of another food that is then not entirely consumed.

Our dream was, indeed, to “Take the ick out of sick” but most important is that children are administered medication safely, and accurately. Take a look at this Web M.D. article and see why perhaps Mary Poppins should have been singing, “Just a cup rimmed with fruity flavors helps the medicine go down..”
