HEALTHY SNACKS
Cheese sticks are indispensable to parents, but allergies and saturated fat can make them a bad choice. Super Stix taste like mozzarella cheese, but have no fat or cholesterol, and are lactose-free. Sold in the produce section of grocery stores, $2.99 for a six pack; www.galaxyfoods.com. (2/07)

EYES FORWARD

Itchy eyes, whether from allergic conjunctivitis or seasonal allergies, get relief with new Zaditor eye drops, an over-the-counter medication that can be used on kids as young as 3.  One drop relieves the itch for up to 12 hours, and because it does not contain a decongestant, there is no 'rebound' redness when you stop using it. Zaditor is in drug and chain stores, $14.99 for a 30-day supply.  For more information, go to www.novartis.com. (2/07)

GET A GRIP 1

Getting kids to use shampoo is easier when they don't keep dropping it.  Suave has re-launched its Kids line with 'bubble-grip' bottles that are easier for little hands to hold.  Fruity scents include Wild Watermelon and Cherry Jams 2 in 1 conditioning shampoo, for $1.92-$1.99 per 12 oz. bottle, at drugstores and supermarkets.  Suave is also going upscale, without the price, in its Exhale Moisturizing Body Lotions.  Calming, with lavender and vanilla, and Inspiring, with lime verbena, both include white tea extracts and vitamin E, for only $2.75 per 18 oz.  For more on Suave, go towww.suave.com.

GET A GRIP 2
Flossing can be difficult for kids because they can't hold the tape properly, or thread a flosser.  During February, National Children's Dental Health Month, get your kids pre-threaded Fun Flossers with fluoride.  These colorful single use flossers have ergonomically designed handles, making it easier for little hands to hold. From DenTek, a package of 48 is $2.49 at K-mart.  For more information, go to www.usdentek.com.

Kids may also brush better with a Crest SpinBrush, a battery-operated brush that has a smallhandle that is easy for kids to hold.  The brushes, $4.99 -$5.99 at drug stores, come in dolphin, fire truck and astronaut motifs.www.spinbrush.com. (2/07)

From layette items in the softest cotton to tiny sweaters and other knits, you can point and click your way to well-made, reasonably priced baby clothes. Prices start at $7.50 for a bodysuit.  www.landsend.com. (2/07)
