Children were a large part of the inspiration behind bringing this product to market, and our children take Cold Snap often. Back in the early 90’s, children were put on prophylactic antibiotics and their systems were never given the chance to flex and strengthen. So, yes, use the herbs with your children. Start slowly and if you are getting the desired results, you will know that you are on the right track. One capsule, one-half of a capsule or even one-quarter of a capsule is a good place to start for littlest ones.
