My children love their daily spoonful of Manuka honey—it’s a rhythm that nourishes their bodies and brings so much joy to their faces!

Even the littlest one tots over and brings me a spoon to remind me for his spoonful of Manuka honey!

A daily spoonful of Manuka for Munchkins is such a fun way to deeply nourish your children and have them enjoy the process. 

We have such a beautiful opportunity to teach our children that nourishing their bodies can be joyful and fun rather than restrictive or difficult. Watching their little faces light up eating this honey will boost your confidence, and theirs!

Meet Manuka for Munchkins—Mother Nature’s ‘Multi-vitamin’ for Kids

Meet your child’s daily multivitamin straight from Mother Nature. One of the simplest ways to keep your child healthy and happy—raw Manuka honey is a superfood treat, packed with a nutritional punch. 

Nothing processed, no added sugars or junk like so many children’s products on the market!

Manuka honey is not your average baking honey—it is rich in active enzymes, antibacterial and antiviral properties. Manuka for Munchkins contains over 2000 natural compounds brimming with nutritional properties and immune support benefits.

As a real food, the vitamins and minerals work synergistically together to be even more beneficial and bioavailable. Manuka is rich in vitamins and minerals and a fun way for your child to get in their daily nutrients—magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron and zinc keep the body balanced and replenish minerals stores often depleted through stress or modern food manufacturing.

“Motherhood must-have! My kids love this honey and I love the benefits. We made it through sickness easier this year with daily use. 10/10!” – Marissa

Manuka Honey Gives Your Body a Powerful Digestive Support

Because low stomach acid can come from overgrowth of bacteria, Manuka is a great way to rid your body of those pathogens and keep the digestion flowing properly. Rich in oligosaccharides, which have a prebiotic effect on the gut and promote the proliferation of good flora. 

This can be beneficial for children to rebalance the gut daily, during seasons of sickness or after consuming more ‘junk food’.

Manuka Honey is The Best Food Based Immune Support

It is highly antibacterial and antiviral, helping your children’s body defeat invading pathogens with more ease. Manuka has been proven to have efficacy against antibiotic-resistant microbes, promoting its healing powers against pathogens internally and externally. 

With consistent use of antibiotics, which some children are exposed to, pathogens adapt and become resistant to antibiotics—on the other hand, raw Mānuka honey contains copious amounts of vitamins and minerals that suppress pathogens to help your child recover. 

When sick, it improves sore throats, helps soothe coughs and improve common cold symptoms. And it tastes great, so if your little one is struggling, it’s easy to get down!

Manuka is the perfect daily immune booster. With a daily spoonful of Manuka for Munchkins, I have noticed my children recover from sickness faster or their symptoms aren’t so irritating or draining.

Remember, avoiding sickness isn’t the goal—shifting the body into a place of capacity to move through sickness and recover with more ease is the goal!

“Less sickness this year. My kids were so sick 2 winters ago and after taking this faithfully this past winter, we only had a couple mild sick days. I’m a believer.” – Kathryn

What about Manuka Honey’s sugar content?

I love this explanation from Activist Manuka who sources this beautiful honey!

“These are digested with highly absorbable enzymes that efficiently cleanse the bloodstream. It causes the opposite effect on the body that refined sugar does by creating an inhospitable environment for pathogens and providing nourishment for the liver. Raw honey and fruit are highly anti-inflammatory and have some of the highest antioxidants in the world.

Some important facts to note are that natural sugars are not stored as fat like refined-sugars, does not cause a spike and crash of blood sugar and energy, and lastly, the glucose/fructose from fruit and raw honey does not aggravate health conditions. In fact, they can heal health conditions!”

Is Manuka safe for children?

Yes, any children over the age of 1 can consume Manuka for Munchkins

Infants should not consume any honey due to a bacteria called Clostridium, which babies cannot process due to their immature digestive systems.

Can Manuka honey help when my child is sick?

Absolutely. Manuka honey is considered ‘medicinal grade’ honey and high in active antibacterial and antiviral properties. Manuka honey soothes sore throats, eases coughs, and can mitigate common cold symptoms, helping children recover more swiftly from illnesses.

Should adults eat Manuka honey too?

YES! I do daily and have noticed such a difference in how my body handles and recovers from sickness. 

I take a dropper-full of Manuka Immune Elixir daily and a spoonful of Manuka for Munchkins with my kids. And I also love spreading it on toasted sourdough too.

If exposed to sickness or actively sick, I switch to Manuka Honey 850 MGO as it is medicinal grade and higher in active antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Can consuming Manuka honey prevent sickness?

While not preventing illness, Manuka honey enhances the body’s capacity to handle and recover from sickness more effectively, easing symptoms and shortening duration.
