Convenient Comforting Meal Kits Delivered Straight to Their Door

The #1 Doctor Recommended 12-Hour Cough Suppressant Launches New Campaign to Help Families Feel Better Together from the Comfort of Their Home

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — If you’re a parent with school-aged children, you know that as soon as one kid starts showing cough symptoms, it’s only a matter of time before the entire household is caught in the storm. That’s why this cold and flu season, Delsym – a Reckitt brand and the #1 doctor recommended* 12-hour cough suppressant – is helping families feel better together by providing them with a cozy, convenient, and delicious comfort meal kit.

To help launch the brand’s “Bring Comfort Home” campaign, Delsym conducted a nationwide OnePoll* survey to learn more about what families experience when their household falls under the weather. Results show that sickness strikes households an average of 3x per year, with 61% of respondents saying that once the first symptom strikes, they have 48 hours or less before the rest of the family falls ill. Most families make the best of their sick days by coming together to watch TV and cook comforting meals. Home-cooked soups, stews, and pastas were among parents’ favorite sick-day comfort foods, while children were more likely to prefer mac and cheese, toast, and oatmeal. And yet, more than one-third of respondents admit that cooking is one of those responsibilities that gets brushed aside once chaos strikes their household.

Motivated by these insights, and the brand’s mission to simplify family sickness, Delsym enlisted New York Times best-selling author, producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and mom, La La Anthony to share how she navigates cold and flu season in her household – starting with her family’s favorite sick-day meal, Puerto Rican Chicken Soup. As part of a nationwide campaign sweepstakes, Delsym is creating exclusive meal kits featuring Anthony’s favorite family soup recipe and delivering them to 250 lucky families throughout cold and flu season.

“As we gear up for another cold and flu season, parents are looking for simple solutions to help them manage their household when cough symptoms start to make their way around the family,” said Albert So, Marketing Director, Upper Respiratory Brands at Reckitt. “While Delsym is a simple solution for 12 hours of cough relief for both children (ages 4+) and adults, we know that parents crave easy and comforting remedies to help their entire family feel better. With a delicious and convenient chicken soup recipe kit delivered to your door, Delsym is here to help bring comfort home this season.”

Consumers can sign up to win a Delsym Comfort Meal Kit, featuring La La Anthony’s Puerto Rican Chicken Soup recipe ingredients beginning today, December 4th through Friday, January 5th by visiting Winners will be selected and notified in early January. Terms and conditions apply.
