SUPER Kid The best way of masking medicine taste

One of the most frequent problems mentioned by paediatricians and nurses is the difficulty to administrate medicines to children, from which results poor therapy compliance from these patients. Medication time may be a very stressful moment, which often ends with a forced medicine administration, the only way to overcome the little ones resistance.

Whether it’s a syrup, drops, pills or powders, the objections raised by the young ones do not vary that much: poor taste, weird texture, unpleasant odour, trouble swallowing…

SUPER Kid chiclete e morango frascos

SUPER Kid is the first product designed and specifically developed to facilitate the administration of medicines by children and it is an absolute novelty throughout Europe.

It is a gel in the form of a spray, which is applied directly to children’s mouth immediately before taking the syrup, drops or even a tablet. The original composition of SUPER Kid makes the child unaware of the bad taste of the medicine, making it much easier to take.

How does SUPER Kid work?
The application of oral gel spray directly into the child’s mouth works simultaneously in various ways:

  1. The intense and very pleasant taste of SUPER Kid, similar to a delicacy, fills the child’s mouth and overlaps with any other taste or smell, for a short period of time.
  2. The SUPER Kid oral gel forms a thin film that covers the mucosa, preventing the perception of the bad taste of the medicine that is administered afterwards.
  3. The film that forms on the tongue promotes the slip of the medicine and facilitates its swallowing, even when concerning to tablets.

To obtain ideal results, spray 2 to 4 doses, applying directly to the mouth. You may choose one of the available flavours: bubble gum or strawberry. Then quickly administer the syrup, drops or the tablet.

SUPER Kid is made up only by food additives so it can be used safely in children. It does not contain dyes, sugars or gluten.
