Airborne Kids or Emergen C kids
« on: September 14, 2015, 11:43:59 AM »
DS thinks he is coming down with a cold vs. increase seasonal allergies.  I'd like to boost is Vit C intake.  Does anyone use Airborne Kids or Emergen-C for kids?  Or called on these? DS is allergic to tree nuts and sesame.

Maybe too late, but I have not called on these.  Dd has triedEmergen-C.   PN/TN allergies.  She will not use because she does not like the taste.  We have 3 flavors and she loves other sweet drinks, seltzers, pop rocks, lol.  How can she not like these fizzy, fruity drinks?  Anyway, she did try them a few times and was fine, but I did not call. 

In terms of fighting off colds. I think they help me.  I use Emergen-C.  I got a cold on Sunday this week, and felt horrible.  I have used this once or twice a day since and am almost over the cold.  6 days or so.  That is very fast for me.  My throat/chest are a bit froggy, scratchy, but really, was mild after the first few miserable days.

I have contacted both companies. Emergen-C told me no pn or tn in their facilities. Airborne told me this:

Thank you...I bought it but didn't end up giving it to him, just took him off sugar and dairy which always seems to help.
