I love this time of year! Celebrating the holidays and birthdays are a big to-do in our family, but what happens when someone catches that dreadful cold? It kind of puts a damper on things, right? Did you know that school age kids get around eight to twelve colds per year? Yuck! These colds can last anywhere from six days to two weeks, so symptom relief is super important to get our kids (and the family) back on track faster. As a parent, if my child catches a cold, I want to give him or her medicine that will work…and not taste dreadful! That’s where Dr. Cocoa™ for Children comes in.

Dr. Cocoa for Children is the first-ever chocolate flavored, over-the-counter liquid cough and cold medicine line for children ages 4-13! The great chocolate taste, made with real cocoa, combined with trusted, effective ingredients, means kids are happy to take the medicine and moms are happy that their children will get cough and cold relief.

So why does the taste matter? According to Dr. Cocoa’s new national Harris survey of U.S. parents of school-aged children (ages 4-13), almost 40% of parents said it isn’t easy to give their children over-the-counter liquid cough/cold medicines, with one third of parents believing the taste of the medicine impacted how easy it was to give their child the recommended dose. Dr. Cocoa™ for Children was developed with its real chocolate flavor just for this reason.

Dr. Cocoa™ for Children comes in three patented formulas:

Dr. Cocoa™ Long-Acting Cough Relief – Relieves coughs for up to eight hours without causing drowsiness in children ages 4-13 (active ingredient: Dextromethorphan). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.

Dr. Cocoa™ Daytime Cough + Cold Relief – Relieves stuffy nose and cough for children ages 4-13. Its non-drowsy formula makes it ideal for daytime use (active ingredients: Dextromethorphan and Phenylephrine). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.

Dr. Cocoa™ Nighttime Cough + Cold Relief – Made especially for children ages 6-13 to relieve coughs, along with stuffy nose, runny nose and sneezing at night (active ingredients: Diphenhydramine, Phenylephrine). Follow the package label for exact dose by age, or speak to your child’s pediatrician.
