Does a spoonful of sugar really help the medicine go down? Any parent who has had a sick child on their hands knows how hard it is to force-feed them their medicine. Kenny Kramm, a father and future pharmacist, had this same issue with his children. When his second daughter was born with cerebral palsy and physically couldn't take her medicine due to its bitter taste, Kramm put his chemistry skills to work and created a method for flavoring the antidotes. Today, there are more than 42 flavors available at pharmacies around the world.
Do you flavor your tot's medication to make it go down more easily?
