You Know Your Child is Sick When…

Scroll down for your chance to win a Children’s Wellness Hamper featuring a number of Kiwiherb products!

How often do your kids get sick? It seems like my kids are bringing home some sort of viral bug or infection every month. And in between the fevers and flus, my little one is also battling teething and nappy rash! You know, just to add in a few more sleepless nights to the mix! There are a few sure signs that my kids are getting sick – the refusal to eat; the red cheeks; the lack of interest in trashing the house. We recently asked our readers on Facebook how they can tell when their child is coming down with something? And here are our top answers. How many of these ring true for you?

The Natural Solution

As a mum I am always looking for natural solutions to help ease my child’s symptoms. And as my kids are sick so often, I try to stay away from using the heavy duty stuff unless it is absolutely necessary. My medicine cabinet contains every lotion, ointment, cream and liquid under the sun, including the range of Kiwiherb products. They have specialty formulated products for coughs and colds, colic, teething and nappy rash. Kiwiherb is perfect for parents seeking gentle yet effective health solutions for their children. 4

Another thing I love about the Kiwiherb range is that I don’t have to force feed it or bribe my kids to take it. Kiwiherb products are made entirely from natural ingredients and taste great to even the fussiest child. As a mum, Kiwiherb is the natural choice and a smart addition to any medicine cabinet. Hopefully you find as much success with the Kiwiherb range as I have.
