Coughs, colds, and kids tend to go together at least half a dozen times per year as regular as clockwork, but that doesn't mean you can't do anything about them once they arrive. Try St. Francis Kids Cough Syrup for a time-tested organic approach to help Stop It Cold.

This product was previously marketed as Stop It Cold® Cough Syrup – Kids.

St. Francis cough syrup also comes in an adult version, which has been marketed under both the "Stop It Cold Cough Syrup" name and as "Elderberry Cough Syrup".
