Recipe: Juice Pops a.k.a. Fever or Sick Pops

Tis the season to get sick and when you have two little ones, getting sick is the norm.  So today's recipe/tute is for all the little sick kiddies who have a throat infection, sore throat, or a fever.   Joshie calls these "sick pops!"

These are so easy to make and require very little time or effort!  I love these because these are sized for little hands and little mouths.   Toddlers just can't eat the store bought popsicles fast enough (they do try very hard though!!).   If you want to make yogurt pops, go here.

Here's what you need:

 Pour the Kool-Aid into the little cups.  Try not to spill it!

Fold a piece of tin foil in half and make a tiny cut crosswise.  Wrap the foil around the cup.

Insert a popsicle stick into the cut you made.  The tin foil helps to keep the stick straight.

Freeze for about 3-4 hours.  Remove and give to sick kid.  
Tip:  Make different flavours in case sick kids get picky

Enjoy your status as "the best Mom EVER!"


  1. What a clever idea to use those small cups. I made something similar this summer with very sweet, mashed watermelon. Not sure if the colour would appeal to boys :-)
