Mary Poppins already knew that "with a spoonful of sugar" every medicine is easier to swallow. And what was current in the days of Mary Poppins has not changed to this day, at least in terms of “bitter medicine”.
Medicine in children
The child is sick, maybe has a very stupid cough and the doctor has a certain one Cough Syrup prescribed. The problem with such a cough syrup prescribed by a doctor is usually that it doesn't taste good at all.
It is said that bitter medicine is supposed to help. The sick person may not care much about that, because they don't want to swallow the juice because it tastes disgusting.
And even if today we are always and everywhere suggested that sugar is something really bad and should be banned from our lives, this little spoonful of sugar helps to swallow this bitter-tasting cough syrup.
You just take a level teaspoon of sugar and let the disgusting-tasting juice drip onto it. Due to the sweetness of the sugar, the bitter taste is largely neutralized and the child will swallow the healing medicine. "Give medicine to children | Health" read more
