Say hello to my favorite “bribe,” Wedderspoon Manuka honey lollipops! I am totally one of those moms that uses bribes to get through the day, no judging please! I also want the best for my children’s health, so I try and stick to as healthy as possible when it comes to candy. Every now and then they have a piece of chocolate or we go for ice cream but for the most part, they indulge in these organic manuka honey lollipops from Wedderspoon. I have used this brand of honey for quite a few years because their manuka honey is the best of the best. When they came out with honey lollipops, I knew I had to add them into the mix and my kids (and myself) LOVE them.
Manuka honey is a great superfood to add into your diets because it covers a multitude of nutritional benefits. It has been a secret weapon in my holistic medicine cabinet and I never have to fight the kids to take a tablespoon of honey at any given time. Having it in lollipop form just makes them think they are getting a special treat. My dad was a beekeeper, and I have grown up eating honey and honey products while learning about what they do for your body. Honey calms inflamed membranes and eases a cough. In a study that involved 139 children, honey beat out dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and diphenhydramine (an antihistamine) in easing nighttime cough in children and improving their sleep. By using natural products versus chemical-filled medicines, we are building our immune systems up rather than breaking them down.
I highly suggest buying these and adding them into your children’s lives. This is a great time to do so as Easter is right around the corner. These make the perfect addition to their Easter baskets and gives them something sweet and special that isn’t harmful to their body. You can buy these lollipops in a varity of flavors including: grape, orange and raspberry. If you purchase before 4/1 you get 25% off of your order AND if you decide to spend over $50 on their website, you’ll receive FREE shipping.
