A MUM revealed a genius trick to get your kids to take medicine.
And it is really easy.
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.

Needless to say, her little boy (who is well now) gulped it down.
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.”
For suggested for older children calling it “something appealing like unicorn potion, sprinkle syrup or dinosaur poop.”
People praised her beautifully simple idea.
One person said: “This tip is genius, thank you.”
Another said: “I will definitely put this in the memory bank for future medicine refusals.”
“Aw I wish I remembered this trick last week! Such a battle sometimes, hey?” said a third.
Whilst a fourth said: “I love the fact that he wanted more! I hope he feels better soon.”
