Under the weather, under the covers, but still cute as pie!

I am new to the Mothering community and hope that I am posting in the right place! We are visiting upstate NY from California and as soon as we got here, everyone got a terrible cold!  When my daughter gets sick now she will proudly inform us that “my body is heating right up to cook out the sickness!” (I will always be happy that, at a very young age, we told her exactly what a fever is and why it is an incredibly great function of the body!)

I used to get really nervous when she had a fever and wouldn’t eat much for a few days.  Experience has taught me that she will be just fine as long as she consumes a lot of fluids and gets good rest.

Here is one thing that I make for her to help sooth the fever and cool things down a bit, while giving her some nutrients.  This is just a springboard, you can adjust to your items on hand and what your little sick honey-buns like:

Mom’s Fever Pops:

1 organic banana, 2 cups frozen organic berries (peaches and raspberries are favorites), 1 cup organic spinach or other organic green (washed really well), 1/2 cup organic juice (apple, blueberry, pomegranate, orange) a sprinkling of organic flaxmeal (optional) and honey to taste.

Blend it up and put in frozen-pop-molds and voila!  If my kiddo isn’t sick, I also add yogurt to this recipe.  **A hint:  don’t tell them what is in it if they don’t like greens!  They won’t realize they are there!

What are your home remedies?

Good thoughts, Karen

Welcome to Mothering! I love the recipe and what a great idea to freeze it in pops! My kids will eat a lot of things frozen that they wouldn't eat otherwise. What is it about the shape and cold of a popsicle that turns a smoothie into a dessert?

You are right about the shape of the popsicle!  Anything frozen on a stick is a treat to kids :)  We like to make healthy pudding pops with DrOetker Organics brand chocolate pudding mix.  Or we will layer the vanilla pudding with raspberries mashed in jam in the popsicle mold....  popsicles are fun!
