DIY Cold Remedies for Kids

We're flying through Kleenex like nobody's business, orange juice is being guzzled, and you can hear tiny chests rattling outside bedroom doors. Basically, we have the plague.

We are so sick over here. I told our pediatrician this week that I think we have the plague. He wasn't convinced, but let me tell you, IT FEELS LIKE IT.

Seriously, you might catch a germ even from reading something typed in my house.

We've got nasty coughs, sticky and green noses, rashes, high fevers, massive ear infections and general malaise.

It's been a LONG week.

So since we're not going anywhere, there's no time like the present to start creating some DIY cold remedies for the kids...and at this point, mine could use ALL of them...

If you're kid has a cold, chances of you getting it are pretty high. If that's the case and your sore throat and cold get you down. Don't just "hang in there" and "deal with the pain" Here are 9 proven hot drinks to relieve sore throat pain that anyone can make in less than 10 minutes! Plus sore throat busting smoothies, the best foods to eat with a sore throat, and what you MUST avoid when you have a sore throat.
