Buckwheat honey

I just read that buckwheat honey is supposed to be more effective and safer than cough medication for children. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it. It's supposed to be safe for children as young as 1, but I thought kids were supposed to be older before they could eat honey...

  • nope, honey at 1 is fine :) it's younger where they say honey isn't good. as for buckwheat being better than cough syrup, I don't know. Honey though is really good at helping the immune system, and helping with colds. I put it in teas all the time, and it helps immensely.
