As a sickly sort of child, with some unidentified problem with my digestive system, I was given all sorts of bizarre concotions to try to make me "function" normally.

How many of you were made to drink liquid paraffin on a daily basis? Not many, I would guess. Believe me, cod liver oil with malt was a positive treat by comparison.  ;D

During one stay in Middlesbrough General Hospital, at the age of four, I was allowed to go round with the nurses, helping to dish out the daily dose of malt extract to other children.

There was another spectacularly disgusting substance which, in our house, was just known as "Pyok" because that was roughly the noise I made when forced to drink it. I think it was an iron tonic - sort of yellowy green and gloopy.

Amazingly, I have no problems whatsoever these days - could it just be that I eat copious quantities of fresh fruit and veg? What sort of a radical idea would that have been in 1954?

 ;D ;D ;D

I remember this one and it was utterly HORRIBLE...... Minadex, I think its name was.  Loved the malt and cod liver oil though ;D  Another favourite of mine were the small tins of Horlicks tablets, with each tablet individually wrapped.

I brought a jar of Virol home for the children - they hated it, but my OH's eyes lit up when he saw a childhood favourite and insisted I included it on the weekly grocery list. 

My mother once brought home a codliver oil chocolate bar from the Co-Op thinking her weekly chore of getting 3 little mouths to open on cue would be made easier, Ugh.

Am I the only one to remember a spoonful of Bemax scattered on breakfast cereals and a hot 'beef' drink made of a small teaspoon of Burdalls gravy salts in a cup of boiling water?
