How can a child swallow pills more easily?

Gradually. Some children can swallow pills without any problems, but others need training. The easiest way to teach a child to swallow pills is to gradually have them swallow bigger and bigger candy objects (for example: nerds-->mini m&m's-->large m&m's) without chewing, with water. Also, have them put their head back to swallow pills and forward to swallow capsules.
