Honey for sore throats

A 2007 study showed that honey was the best at relieving coughs in children. Some children were sent to bed with a tablespoon of honey, some with a cough syrup and others with nothing.

The study found that the frequency and severity of their coughs reduced most for the children that had the honey. As a result they had a better night sleep – and so did Mum and Dad! 

You can read the study here and buy honey here of course!
