Oh Wini you have just transported me back to the late 1940s/early 1950's  ;D The only thing I don't remember was dried banana.

I also used get given what I think were calcium tablets. Seem to remember they came in a jar and were different flavours.

Adding  to your list was Andrews Liver Salts which my late brother used to have a glass of every day whilst I had the Syrup of Figs on Sundays.

Funny how how all these things were given on a Sunday. It was also bath night that day as well.

My Syrup of Figs night was always Friday, so I'd 'go' on Saturday.

Bath was Saturday, (after 'going')  so I'd be clean for church Sunday !

Yes Jean
Sunday night was bath night and I had to sit on the floor while my mother combed my hair with those horrible fine tooth combs to make sure I didn't have nits and I always went off to school with the admonition "Don't put anyone elses pixie on."
Andrews Liver salt was for adults I think, settled the stomach.
I remember the bile beans but I suppose they were similar to the Andrews Liver salts.

Geoff E where on earth did you get that photo from, do they still make the stuff?  ;D

I'm sure it's no longer made.

I imagine the enamel advert is to be seen on a platform at a preserved steam railway.

Don't cry because its over. Smile because it happened.

We used to put Andrews liver salts in our orange squash to make it fizzy.  My mum used to go to the cupboard for the tin and swear there should be more in it than there was, we just sat there looking innocent.

I remember well the dreaded Cod Liver Oil and also Scott's Emulsion, although what the Scott's Emulsion was for a don't know.  The malt, I think, was called something like Irredex.   There was also Gregory's Powder, Gregory's Liquorice Powder and if the Syrup of Figs didn't work there was that awful Castor Oil.

My babies loved it on their dummies, got them to sleep at night but I did make sure to clean their two teeth very carefully next morning! Must have done a good job because they all have good teeth now 30 odd years later. I remember my dad having false teeth at thirty!!!!!!!!
