Can I give Dimetapp Elixir Colour Free Cold&Allergy, which has exp 03 2014 and been stored in the fridge since I bought it in Jan 14, to my 11 yr old?

In brief: You should be ok

Generally, it is not advisable to take medications after the expiration date as they may lose chemical properties that make them effective.
However, it may work and is unlikely to cause any harm.
