Why We Love It

This recipe is so easy to make and tastes just delicious! Kids will love it as a healthy alternative to their regular sugar fix.

The lemon and honey properties of this drink means that it is perfect for kids have a sore thout or cough. We like Manuka honey as it has anibacterial properties which can speed up recovery during illness!

Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of "stomach problems," including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
