A spoonful of sugar might make the medicine go down, but how much medicine should kids be having in the first place? Ibuprofen and paracetamol are the two medicines we often reach for when our kids are sick, but labels and packaging can be confusing.

Remember, if you think your child too much medicine, call the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26 or take your child to Emergency.
