In brief: Honey

If a child is over the age of one, honey may be used for coughs.
I recommend buckwheat honey for its taste and texture. It is not carried in all stores. The soothing effect of the honey is useful at bedtime. In older children, i will add some lemon onto the tablespoon. This helps to break up the mucous. This was a good question since the over the counter medication for children is very limited.
