Growing up, Fall was always my favorite Season. (It might have something to do with the fact that my birthday is in October – which BTW, I turned 40 this year!!! Woot woot!!!) But I always attributed my love for Fall to the changing colors of the leaves, the cooler temperatures, the apple cider donuts, the comfy sweaters, and my very favorite – the first whiff of a fireplace in the cold breeze. And don’t even get me started on Fall fashion…I looked forward to Fall all year long.
Fall also marks the beginning of cold and flu season. Our two daughters get their fair share of colds, some that seem to last longer than others, and we get our family flu shots most years. But our son? He is another story.
You see, Ben struggles with extreme asthma. Any minor sniffle can send us to the Emergency Room in the middle of the night. That being said, we have already visited the ER once this Season. It was my fault. I wasn’t paying attention to a minor cough he had come home from school with – and in the middle of the night he woke me up with a full blown attack. It scared the daylights out of me as we gave him his medication and rushed him to the hospital. Any mother out there with asthmatic kids can tell you exactly how horrible that feeling is. But now? I am prepared. I may have been off my game that day, but NOT AGAIN. I started stocking up. I have our asthma readiness action plan set for the Season by the Doctor, I have tried and true medicines on hand, and I made sure to have everything we need – from heat packs to vaporizers to ensure my son’s health. This Fall, we are ready for the fight.
CareOne, the new over-the-counter healthcare and personal care brand at Food Lion, is here to answer my call. CareOne has over-the-counter healthcare and personal needs conveniently located in the Food Lion healthcare aisle, making it easy to be able to pick up children’s medicine, vitamins, personal hygiene products, and more while I am shopping for my family’s grocery needs. CareOne has reliable, quality products that are sold at a lower price than National brands. And I feel confident knowing that I can trust the CareOne brand to deliver a product equal to, or better than the National brand counter part. The best part? All private brand items have a double your money back guarantee. That means if you don’t like the product, you get DOUBLE YOUR MONEY BACK (learn more). Now that is a company that believes in their product.
With this recent cold that sent us to the ER, we have started using and loving the CareOne Children’s Mucus relief chest congestion medicine. It acts as an expectorant, so it doesn’t just suppress the cough, while still breaking up and thinning the mucus that wants to build up in my son’s lungs (which would trigger an asthma attack). My son loves the taste, while I love telling him that he needs to rest when all he wants to do is go outside and play – which happens to be my number one indicator that he is starting to feel better!
Between sore throats, germy hands, women’s vitamins for my new ‘advanced age’ (ha!), and….other female needs for our household, we are all set for this cold and flu season thanks to Food Lion and CareOne. Thank goodness too…because my own nose just started sniffling.
CareOne is endorsed by pharmacists and affordable, CareOne is the one brand to provide clinical solutions for all the everyday healthcare needs of my family—and I can find it conveniently at my grocery store.
