Tot Talk: Is your child sick?

It is a stressful time when your kid is sick, both for you and them. The child gets irritable, bored and you as the parent find it very easy to reach your wits end, trying to keep your sick child happy. Here are some ways that you can treat your child and keep them happy (and you) when they are sick. Let's get the fluid intake and nutrition as recommended by the doctor out the way first.

To make drinking fun when your child doesn't feel like drinking, you can create food colored ice cubes (blue and yellow ones) and pop them into their drinks so your child can watch them go green. A crazy straw always works a treat too. Also it doesn't take much persuasion to get your child to 'eat' popsicles and slushies.

When encouraging your child to eat when they are not feeling well, create little bite sized nibbles like grapes, carrot sticks, cheese cubes and apple slices. A variety of things will entice your child to eat at least something, and as it is bite sized it will seem less daunting to a not particularly hungry child.

A good selection of toys, activity books, DVDs, or video games will also help make sure that your child is entertained enough throughout their illness. A kids activity basket or movie gift baskets certainly are great choices here. For more info have click the link
