My 2 ½ year old daughter has come down with croup. She has been prescribed prednisolone which from previous experience is a bitter tasting and therefore difficult medicine to get children to take. Typically our twins take medicine easily but this is not the case with prednisolone.
I discussed this with the pharmacist who indicated the medicine could be "hidden" in juice etc. Unfortunately, the flavor of the prednisolone is overpowering the taste of the apple juice I mixed it with. She is slowly getting through it, but I hope someone might have a better idea.
How can I ensure my daughter takes her medication? Is there something I can hide it in that might cover its bitter flavor?
