Popsicles!: That's right, popsicles. Cold and soothing, sometimes it's the only thing kids are willing to try when their mouth is so sore. Popsicles distract from the pain, while affording some much-needed hydration in a child who is probably avoiding, if not flat-out refusing, most food. Avoid citrus juices (painful). Make your own to save money. If your child is dehydrated, try pedialyte pops.
