Sound familiar? Many kids feel frightened that they’ll choke or that a pill will get stuck in their throat. Others may not be afraid of swallowing pills - they've just never learned how. Either way, swallowing pills is a skill, and it can be taught and built on over time.
Note: Children and teens with certain physiological issues such as swallowing disorders may not be able to swallow pills or capsules. Always talk with your naturopathic doctor or pediatrician before giving your child any supplements or medications.
