Just wondering if honey has the same effect as sugar does on children with ADD. My 13 yr old son has ADD and if he has so much as a drink of soda with sugar in it or any taste of sugar - he's bouncing off the walls. I would really like to know if honey would be a good alternative for him. I don't use honey much at this time but I've found some good cookbooks with honey recipes in them and thought I might give it a shot. I bought a brand new honey bear and was going to give some honey to the boy but his little sister with autism decided the nice squirt spout on the honey bear was for playing in the sink and she dumped the whole honey bear down the sink. SIGH! Try try again, huh?
