Don't let allergies keep your kids from enjoying the great outdoors

The last thing I want to do is watch my son Liam lose his "oomph." It's bad enough to see it happen when he's sick. As a mom, I'm not giving up that fight without fighting back.

Liam is like me – allergic to things from the outdoors. Whether its pollen or ragweed, sometimes nature can really slow us down. I don’t want to miss a single day of spring, summer or fall with my boy because I know that he is growing up faster than I can handle.

Don't let allergies keep your kids from enjoying the great outdoors

If he wants to race in the backyard with some friends, there shouldn't be any hesitation. Childhood is about getting up and going, about jumping off a diving board, climbing over a fence, building a fort and never looking back. The world is waiting for my children, and I am here to make sure they are ready for their journey.

On some days, my son needs some allergy relief. I found Children’s Claritin® Grape Flavored Syrup to work well for two different reasons.

  1. It actually does what it's supposed to do — helps relieve my child's allergy symptoms all day long.
  2. My child doesn't protest taking it! As a mom, you know what I'm talking about! I don't need the struggle, the chaos, the fighting. I just need to offer up medicine that will work and medicine that my children will take.

Children's Claritin® Grape Flavored Syrup is a non-drowsy oral allergy brand for children ages 2 and up. It's dye-free, sugar-free, alcohol-free, lactose-free and gluten free that also tastes great!

If you are looking for 24-hour relief of a runny nose, sneezing, itchy-watery eyes and itchy nose or throat, this is the allergy medicine for you.

So, don't worry the next time you see pollen. You can still have a great family day out!
