Must Read: How To Treat Cough Naturally

Honey can be very effective for the treatment of cough. But remember that honey should not be given to children younger than 1 year old.

In one study, children age 2 and older with upper respiratory tract infections were given up to 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) of honey at bedtime. The honey seemed to reduce nighttime coughing and improve sleep.

 Honey appears to be as effective as a common cough suppressant ingredient. Coughing is not all bad. It helps clear mucus from your airway. If you or your child is otherwise healthy, there’s usually no reason to suppress a cough.
