Smiles Lead to Healthier Children


Tylenol Smiling It Forward

Disclosure: I have received information and products from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks. 

If you’re like me, you never want to see your children feeling sick. The lackluster expression on their faces, the listless tone of their voices, the lethargic way they move about – or rather, don’t move about: It all adds up to unhappy little kids. And, in turn, it leads to unhappy parents. After all, we just want our children to be up, playing and having fun. When they don’t feel this way, we immediately want to make them better.

Unfortunately, sometimes this is easier said than done. Especially when your child has a fever. The discomfort, aches and chills that can accompany fever are just another challenge we parents face in trying to ease our children’s pain. Thankfully, in these cases, I can turn to Children’s TYLENOL® for a helping hand. Because it works quickly, I can see the change in my children as they begin to feel better. Their eyes get a little brighter, their cheeks have a little more color and those adorable mouths start to turn up with a smile. When this happens, I know it won’t be long before I’m running to keep up with them as they get back to their favorite activity: having adventures.

Alyson HanniganNow, through our favorite “smiles,” TYLENOL® is asking parents to come together in SMILING IT FORWARD™ for a good cause. Through this initiative, parents can share their favorite smiles at; when they do, TYLENOL® will donate $1 to Children’s Health Fund – up to $100,000 – to help ensure children in need will have access to a doctor and the care they require.

The SMILING IT FORWARD™ campaign kicked off in September when How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan shared the “smiles” of her two daughters, Satyana and Keeva, which triggered the first donation from TYLENOL® to Children’s Health Fund. Children’s Health Fund is well-known for mobile medical clinics that travel throughout the United States to provide healthcare services to underserved children.

Sharing “smiles” is such a simple thing, but the impact on children everywhere can be big, so I invite you to join me in SMILING IT FORWARD™. After all, who doesn’t serve to smile?


  1. I will definitely be doing this.
