Teaching children how to swallow pills is easier than you think
from Calgary Herald
Many children and adolescents find it difficult to swallow pills. A recent survey of close to 300 parents revealed that 30 to 40 per cent of children refused or rejected a pill or liquid medication; more than 50 per cent of children were unable to swallow a standard size pill or small capsules. This becomes particularly problematic where there are no alternatives to taking pills and especially so in children who encounter chronic illnesses.
