Comvita Kids: A Game-Changer for My Family and Practice

By Kristin Kirkpatrick, MS, RDN

As a mom, I’m always trying to find ways to help my kids achieve optimal health. That means, I get them outside for natural play opportunities, I make sure that they have well-structured meal times, and I give them REAL food that makes them strong.

That’s why it’s frustrating to me when I spend the money on premium wellness products for my family that don’t work (or that my kids hate the taste of). Thankfully, I found a game-changing solution using real Manuka Honey. Comvita’s new Comvita Kids wellness line is now my #1 choice for keeping kids well and soothing coughs and scratchy throats. I’ve prescribed Manuka Honey in my practice for years to help my patients with immune and digestive support, but I know you can’t trust any brand. Comvita has 45 years of beekeeping experience and is the market leader in this super honey. Here are my three reasons why I’ll be recommending it for my patients:

Comvita Manuka Honey is the REAL thing

My patients know that I only prescribe real food. That means it comes from nature, not from a lab. Make no mistake, THIS Manuka Honey is as real as it gets! No more potions that don’t work with ingredients I feel uneasy about, no more processed junk disguised by clever marketing as “superfood” and no more gross tasting elixirs I used to have to hide in my kids’ food. I don’t have to fight with them about taking Comvita Kids, I feel great about what’s in the supplement line, and I love giving my family the benefits of UMF™ Manuka Honey. This is next-level natural children’s wellness.

Comvita Manuka Honey is the natural solution for your little one’s sore throat from cough or cold.

Despite the hundreds of products on the market to treat a cough or sore throat, Pediatricians don’t recommend taking them since the effect of drug-based formulas on very young kids can be unpredictable. That’s why I was thrilled when Comvita released their soothing Manuka day and night time soothing syrups as well as soothing pops – it’s a natural formula made with organic ingredients that actually works. My kids love it and I love that they feel better. The syrups are premium, and the pops feel more like a bribe than a supplement.

The New Comvita Kids’ line is great for the whole family

I’ve been using Manuka Honey for years, as a natural source to enhance my health and add super powers to my meals. I use it to sweeten tea, and for my kids’ lunches, I use it to flavor peanut butter balls and put it on their whole grain sprouted toast in the morning as well. For my ultra-trail runner husband, I use it in his pre run oatmeal. Probably the most medicinal use for it though is a daily spoonful that the whole family looks forward to! I’ve recommended a spoonful of Manuka Honey to my patients for years as an overall wellness supplement made from real food, and for something functional to satisfy their sweet tooth.

Having the chance to use Comvita Kids and real Manuka Honey for the upcoming cold and flu season just makes my life that much easier!
