Scarlet, my normally always-healthy child, woke up with sniffles and a scratchy throat. She said, “Oh no, not this again!” Which is honestly what I think every fall. We can go up to seven months with nary a sniffle, and then the new school year hits. It does get better, at least for us, but Des just started kindergarten so he’s already been sick three times. Scarlet’s in third grade so it happens less often, but that just means it’s worse when it happens. And it takes away from her busy schedule! Not to mention, being sick can feel so awful to a kid (and adult) and you just want to make it better for them.
It’s no surprise that they were created by a mom for parents. The thing is, I was feeling a little scratchy myself the other day and I helped myself to a strawberry flavored one. It was SO good and soothing. So you’re probably wondering what Lolleez™ are. They are organic, worry-free, throat-soothing lollipops for kids – that offer a simple solution to a simple problem. They’re made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients, as well as ingredients you can pronounce and understand. They contain things like natural fruit pectin and organic honey. The yummy, flat lollipops are also Non-GMO, dairy free, nut free, and available in three flavors – Watermelon, Strawberry, and Orange Mango. They are kid and parent approved here.
For a little background, Melissa Evans – a mom of four and a health coach – couldn’t find anything to “eez” her kids’ throats or her mind when they were sick. That’s how Lolleez™ were born! Last year, Melissa’s daughter came down with a sore throat and there was nothing Melissa could find that made her feel comfortable. She wanted something to put a smile back on her daughter’s face. Cough drops and lozenges posted a choking risk, and for the most part contained chemicals.
Melissa Evans, Lolleez™ Founder, said : “Few ailments cause overall unhappiness to both kids and parents like a sore throat. Whether it’s allergies, a cough or a cold, a sore throat is painful. Every time you swallow, it’s there and it hurts.” “There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer, so I’m really excited to be able to offer an organic and worry-free throat remedy that can help soothe both physical (child) and emotional (parent) pain, with the launch of Lolleez™.
As I mentioned, they come in three delicious and fun flavors. Lolleez™ are flat and on a stick, versus a round ball potential choking hazard. They surveyed hundreds of kids, and determined that traditional flavors like cherry and grape have a negative association tied to medicines. So Watermelon, Strawberry and Orange Mango it is! They come in packs of 15 pops.
