Now that kids are heading back to school, families know they need to prepare for the inevitable sniffles, coughs and sore throats. Honey is a time-honored way to treat both sore throats and coughing. One study even showed that in children over age 2, honey before bedtime was just as effective as a common over-the-counter cough suppressant ingredient (source). These honey pops by Carolyn over at the blog Homework are a great way to have soothing honey ready - especially while on the go. Use a lollipop to stir some honey into your tea or to help sooth an unhappy throat tickle.
