Study: Honey Works Better Than Cough Syrup

A Penn State study found that honey was more effective than
dextromathorphan for treating nighttime coughs in kids ages 2-11. The
dosages used in the test were equivalent to the cough syrup: half a
teaspoon for kids 2-5, a full teaspoon for kids 6-11.

Both parents and kids reported better sleep quality. Kids reported
they liked the bear-shaped bottle. Also, remember that episode of ER? Don’t give honey to a kid under 1yo.
