Childrens' health feature - Summer Holidays - sun, sea and stomach upsets? Wednesday 18 June 2008 PDF Print Going on that long awaited summer holiday is a common cause of tummy upset in children under 10. One in three kids (30%) is sick as a result of holidays or travelling, according to a new survey by Milk of Magnesia. And this makes holiday tummy upsets four times more common than sickness from birthday parties : The Milk of Magnesia survey also revealed that 43% of mums believe that it’s better not to treat their child’s sickness, however Dr Dawn Harper comments, “In the summer holidays children can be more likely to suffer from tummy problems because of changes to their diet and eating habits. Once a child has been sick, their stomach becomes very acidic which can cause pain and upset. Using a gentle ‘antacid’ remedy suitable for children can give soothing and effective relief, helping the child to return to full holiday health more quickly.” Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia is a gentle formula suitable for children over three years old and has been used by generations of mothers to sooth their children’s tummy upsets. The traditional mint flavoured liquid provides effective relief from the symptoms of indigestion, over acidity, flatulence and heartburn. Ends Editor’s notes; Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia is available in two sizes, a handy 100ml bottle from £2.29 and a 200ml bottle from £3.49. Contains Magnesium Hydroxide. Always read the label.
