This is a partnered post with Lolleez.

‘Tis the time of year for colds, sore throats and allergies. With a family of six, you can imagine how crazy this time of year can get! In our family, we share laughs and memories, as well as colds, sore throats and allergies. When our kids get sore throats, it’s really hard because they want to feel better immediately and as their mama, I want it as well. I want them to feel safe, happy and healthy – not suffer from the yuckyness that comes with colds, sore throats and allergies. If their sore throat gets worse, you may need to consult with an ear nose & throat doctor.

5 Ways to Soothe Sore Throats for Kids

1 – Sip warm liquids.

2 – Eat cold or frozen liquids (such as ice pops or popsicles).

3 – Get lots of rest.

4 – Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen as needed.

5 – Suck on hard candy or throat lozenges, such as Lolleez.

These are some great and effective ways to treat sore throats. One that my kids really liked to help soothe their sore throats was Lolleez. Lolleez are organic, worry-free, throat soothing lollipops for kids. What makes Lolleez different are the ingredients – Lolleez are made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients and ingredients you can pronounce and understand, like organic honey and natural fruit pectin. They are also Non-GMO as well as gluten, dairy and nut free.Second, Lolleez are made in a worry-free shape that are flat and on a stick versus a round ball, which is a potential choking hazard. Lastly, Lolleez comes in three delicious kid (and adult) friendly flavors: Watermelon, Strawberry and Orange Mango.  After surveying hundreds of kids, Lolleez founders determined that traditional flavors like cherry and grape have a negative association that is tied to medicines.

Last year, when mom of four and health coach, Melissa Evans’ daughter came down with a sore throat, she wished there was something she could provide to soothe her and put a smile back on her face. That’s when she noticed there were no options that she felt comfortable with. Cough drops and lozenges posed a risk for choking and, for the most part, contained chemicals like artificial colors, flavors and ingredients. She then came up with the idea for a worry-free, healthier and fun alternative for kids.

“Few ailments cause overall unhappiness to both kids and parents like a sore throat. Whether it’s allergies, a cough or a cold, a sore throat is painful. Every time you swallow, it’s there and it hurts,” said Melissa Evans, Lolleez Founder. “There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer, so I’m really excited to be able to offer an organic and worry-free throat remedy that can help soothe both physical (child) and emotional (parent) pain, with the launch of Lolleez.”

Lolleez are available at CVS, Stop & Shop, Target and Amazon. Lolleez come in packs of 15 pops: Watermelon, Strawberry, Orange Mango and a Variety Pack for a suggested retail of $6.99.

Have you tried Lolleez before in your home to help soothe a sore throat?

    Whenever I have kids, I am going to do exactly what my mom did for me – throw chicken broth into a pot and boil it with veggies and make him/her drink it!! That is so comforting to me. I remember having food poisoning and she made that for me and BAM I felt so much better! MOM KNOWS BEST!
