Mum Nikki, who goes under  @tinyheartseducation on Instagram, told how she couldn’t get her lad to take anything.

She demonstrated by trying to feed him it via a syringe – of course he refused.

So she tried another way – by squirting the medicine on a spoon and topping it with sprinkles.

She said honey worked too. For older children you can claim it is something exciting… like dinosaur poo.

She wrote: “How smug is my face at the end. This is how you get your little one to take their meds.”

She said: “It’s actually a great and versatile parenting methodology to use in any tricky situation: just add sprinkles.

“My mum should have patented this 34 years ago. This is how we were brought up taking our medication and when it tasted really bad, she’d add honey.”
