The focus of present study is to exhibit novel methods for pediatric oral drug delivery. To overcome the problems associated with drug administration, toxicity and taste preference the drug designed in such way that it best suits to child age, required treatment, size and physiological condition. Pediatrics differs from adult in many aspects of pharmacotherapy. Palatability is the biggest challenge while designing the pediatric formulation. As the vast no of limitation present in solid formulation there is wide scope in novel research in designing the pediatrics drug delivery system. Novel approaches in oral drug delivery system is somewhat satisfy the challenges but not the give proper solution. To overcome these problems the novel innovative researches is going on. The formulation should be designed in such a way that is easy to administer for pediatrics, having dose flexibility and better palatability of drug formulation.
