Coughing kids have been known to keep little ones and parents up all night. Unfortunately, the number of treatment options is slim as many over-the-counter options are not suitable for children under the age of 6. A study released in the September issue of Pediatrics magazine tested more than 250 children ages 1-5 who were experiencing nighttime coughing. The participants were given one of three types or honey or a non-honey liquid with similar consistency prior to going to bed for two consecutive nights. The study found that the children who received the honey mixture coughed less frequently, less severely and slept better through the night.
