The simple hack that will get toddlers to take their medicine ANY time 

A mum has revealed her simple hack for ensuring her toddler takes his medicine, after she became sick of struggling with her son on a daily basis.

The Australian woman shared the trick on the parenting Instagram page Tiny Hearts Education, which involves coating the child’s medicine with sprinkles so they see it as something they might want to eat, rather than something they need to take.

‘See that?’ the woman posted alongside the clip.

‘How smug is my face at the end. This is how you get your little one to take their meds.’

She added: ‘It’s actually a great and versatile parenting methodology to use in any tricky situation: just add sprinkles.

‘My mum should have patented this 34 years ago. This is how we were brought up taking our medication and when it tasted really bad, she’d add honey.’

For those who want to try the trick, the woman said you should simply squirt the child’s medicine onto a spoon, add sprinkles and then describe it as ‘something appealing like unicorn potion, sprinkle syrup or dinosaur poop’.

‘Repeat after me: Hallelujah!’ she posted.

This isn’t the first time Tiny Hearts Education have been praised for their parenting hacks, with the organisation previously offering advice on everything from feeding to choking.  

In December, Tiny Hearts revealed how quickly something a child between age 0 and 3 picks up can become a potential choking hazard via another clip.

In the video, the woman can be seen dropping various things through a hole that she has created with her index finger and thumb. 

The foods she drops down include a cherry, popcorn, a grape, a $1 coin and other toys.

‘This is how I check to see if food or small items may potentially be a choking hazard for my bubs,’ she wrote.

‘The circle is approximately the size of a child’s airway aged 0-3. If anything can fit in this hole, then it’s a choking hazard.’

She ended the clip by saying that parents should keep these things out of reach of small children as much as possible.
