PediaCare comes in kid-pleasing flavors and the formulations match those of other recalled brands. They are arriving in stores just in time for the cold/flu season. All of these new products will retail will be around $6.99 at major retailers:

Along with expanding their line of products, they have also launched a new iPhone app that will help determine which product is the best match for your child's symptoms. You can get more information about the app and all of their products at http://www.pediacare.com/.

We received a bottle of PediaCare® Children's Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever and a bottle of PediaCare® Children's Fever Reducer Plus Multi-Symptom Cold to review. Fortunately, we have had no sick kiddos to try it on. One reader will have the opportunity to win the same two products below.

We also received a bottle of Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. My daughter doesn't love gummies like most kids do, but she couldn't resist these cute little penguins. They taste like candy, although they are sugar free and have the fiber equivalent of 21 spears of asparagus. (I tried these myself and they really do taste like gummy candy!) She has taken them every day since they arrived.
Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are a daily fiber supplement made just for kids by Fleet®, a trusted brand for digestive health for more than 100 years. They retail for $7.99 at major retailers. One lucky reader will win a bottle here.

Now, through November 30th, Pedia-Lax is running the Keep Kids Moving Sweepstakes to promote healthy activity for kids. There are 6 high value prize packages. You can find more details and official rules at the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies website.

  1. I like that they make a variety of safe effective medicines so they have something for coughs, allergies, fever etc..

  2. I love that there are so many different types of medicine so I can give my kids meds specific to their symptoms. I also love that there are fiber gummies! This is the first I've ever heard of kids fiber gummies, but I think it is great because getting my 3 year old to get enough fiber is a challenge. He would be more likely to eat these gummies than anything else.

  3. Liking that the pedialax can work as quickly as 30 minutes...we have been trying miralax for Taryn & finding the right balance...not so much fun....if you know what I mean.

  4. I like that pediacare has a non medicated line of products and for the pedia-lax I like that they come in a gummy form. My little guy will eat anything gummy.

  5. I like that they have the Pedia-Lax® Fiber Gummies "Keep Kids Moving" Sweepstakes, and that they want to help get kids moving!

  6. I like the gummy form. My kids hate pills.

  8. I like that there is fiber in the gummies- my daughter has constant issues with being plugged up.
    Thanks for the chance.
