For Kids

Honey should NEVER be given to children under 12 months old. 

Their digestive system is not developed at that age to digest the enzymes found in raw honey, and can not tolerate the MGO activity.

 

 Manuka Honey Health Benefits for kids 

Yes!  Honey is sweet, and we tend to divert our kids away from sweet foods.  However, this golden liquid is packed full of health benefits, making it a tasty and natural alternative to sugar. It is:

- Packed full of vitamins and minerals
- Provides long lasting energy (perfect to have before school)
- Assists with healing of cuts, scratches, wounds, bites and stings when used topically
- A natural supressant for coughs and fantastic for a sore throat.
- Boosts immunity
- Beneficial for healthy gums and teeth, unlike sugar. 
- If you are giving your child a dose of paracetamol, follow it with a teaspoon of honey to help protect the liver.


What is the best way for kids to take honey?

There is actually no bad way to consume honey, however to receive the maximum benefits it is best taken straight off the spoon or out of the pouch on an empty stomach, and no food or drink to be taken for 30 minutes afterwards.  Although, kids will definitely benefit from taking honey in any form including in cooking or in drinks as it is a healthier alternative to sugar.

Drizzle it on pancakes or waffles, fresh fruit, in smoothies, make ice cream or icy poles, use it as an alternative in cakes and deserts. The ideas are endless.

Our Handy Honey pouches are perfect to take along to sports games for energy, or to pack in the lunch box. 


Adding honey to the kids drink bottles after exercise or sport is ideal as well as it helps the body recover.

 

Education

Every type of honey has it's own unique flavour depending on the plants that the bees have been collecting pollen from, and the area that it comes from.  It is important that we educate our kids to respect and care for bees, as they are responsible for so much plantlife on Earth.  Our kids are the future, and it will be up to them to continue to save the bees so that the foodchain and our ecosysytem will remain intact. 

A great way to educate kids and to introduce them to honey is to gather a small group for a HONEY TASTING.  Our  Manuka Honey, Leatherwood Honey and Native Bee Honey all have very different flavours, and it can be lots of fun getting a group of kids together to taste them.

Youtube has some great educational videos available for kids about bees, such as the national Geographic one below made just for kids.
