Keep Your Kids Well this Winter

During the cold winter months, our children’s immune systems need to stay strong to fight off the millions of bacteria and viruses they come into contact with at school.  

There are a number of products on the market that will help protect our children naturally.  Here are two child friendly products that will be useful, natural, kid friendly additions to the medicine cabinet this winter!

Comvita® Children’s Natural Lemon & Honey Lollipops combine the antiseptic power of bee propolis with the sweet soothing antibacterial nature of Manuka Honey UMF 10+ in a fun and enjoyable form. Lemon is added for flavour whilst zingy menthol and natural peppermint oil work hard to unblock a stuffy nose. (£4.99 for 10)
Please note: bee propolis can cause allergic reactions. If irritation or swelling of the mouth or throat occurs, discontinue use.
Available from Boots, Holland & Barrett and all good pharmacies and health food stores.  Always read the label carefully before use. For further information visit

Sambucol for Kids plus Vitamin C is a great tasting high quality Black Elderberry extract to boost the immune system and fight off infectious viruses. Containing no artificial colours or flavours, the syrup is suitable for 1-12 years olds to help keep the little ones healthy during the winter. It’s also alcohol free, gluten free and non-drowsy. 

Available from Boots, Superdrug, Holland & Barrett and all good pharmacies and health stores. Visit for further information or to buy online.

I've been sent a pack of each to try out with my children.  I love the idea that they are natural and help to boost the immune system and fight germs without resorting to using chemical based medicines which are full of artificial flavourings, colourings and sweeteners.  The natural flavours of both products are very palatable.  The lollipop idea is great.  Kids love lollies...they won't need much encouragement to eat one, and it is a bonus that is doing them good.  They have a mild menthol taste which Kizzy enjoyed.  They soothed her throat nicely!

I will be interested to see if my children manage to dodge the bug bullets this winter.  Taking the supplements will definitely not do any harm so it's definitely worth investing in a little bit of extra protection over the coming months!


  1. I could do with a pack for me! x

  2. What a brilliant idea to have a health food supplement in the shape of a lollipop.
    I applaud Holland and Barrett for this great idea because I bet any child who is offered a lollipop will automatically jump at the change. Also the other supplements sound just what the medicine cupboard needs, just in case they are required.
