    Popsicles

    It seems any sort of illness can be lessened with a delicious popsicle. When youre feeling sick, you may resist drinking liquids. This is the total opposite of what you need to do to get better faster. Stave off dehydration by consuming a variety of liquids. Popsicles are a great frozen liquid for you to enjoy. The cold will also help numb a sore throat. Look for pure juice varieties of popsicles to get some natural fruit sugars and energy.
