Crosses™ - Parajam (RSA Body & Mind Competition Winner) - Parajam is simply a combination of jam and paracetamol.
Paracetamol is a stable drug which can be mixed with various substances. The dosage is supplied in segments which can be applied to soft foods, or eaten as a jelly. One segment is equal to 1gram. (equivalent to 2 tablets)
The process removes the fear of the tablet taking process, and substitutes taking a tablet with that of eating food.

Penicine - Crosses™ (RSA Body & Mind Competition Winner) - A liquid, sugar based paracetamol is contained within the insides of the lolly, and a rubber nib large enough for the user to suck, nibble and chew on and acts as a subconscious distraction from the tablet taking process and the pain or problem the user might be experiencing.
The dosage is equivalent to two tablets, and has been achieved when the blue cross at the bottom of the pen loses it's colour.
