Candy versus medicine

Via my friend Kevin, a bit of candy news that I found both adorable and alarming. A couple of intrepid sixth graders found that many?kindergartners?and their teachers had trouble distinguishing between certain candies and similar-looking medicines.

The study definitely sounds the alarm on the importance of keeping medications out of kids’ reach, but it’s also adorable because it’s 6th graders doing science! The kids even got to present their work at the American Academy of Pediatrics conference. Great work, ladies!
