Help Alleviate Sore Throats
If your child is age 1 or older, turn to honey for achy throats (Do not feed newborns honey). Mix honey and lemon into a glass of hot water, then cool to room temperature before sipping, Dr. Sears says. "The honey coats and soothes the throat, and the lemon helps cut mucus," he says.
