Home remedies for kids


Although it may not be easy to convince your child to try—and shouldn’t be attempted with children under the age of four—gargling a warm glass of water with ½ teaspoon of salt can soothe a sore throat. BabyCenter wisely advises having children practice gargling first with a glass of plain water. And if they don’t mind having a little lemon added to the concoction, that can help ease the discomfort of a sore throat as well.
