How to Give Medicine to Kids Safely

Reading the Label

Every medicine bottle has a label. Read it carefully with an adult.

Right Amount

Use the cup or spoon that comes with the medicine to measure just right!

 Check the Time

Medicines need to be taken at certain times. Keep track with a grown-up.

Some medicines can be mixed with food. Ask an adult if that's okay.

Mixing Magic

Only take the amount your doctor said, no more, no less!

No Extra Sips

Allergies Alert

Tell your grown-up if you've ever had a bad reaction to any medicine.

Storage Smarts

Medicines should be kept out of reach from little brothers and sisters.

Finishing It

Even if you feel better, finish all the medicine, unless your doctor says it’s okay to stop.

Medicine is just for you. Don't share it with friends.
