    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?

    If you go through the kitchen and remove ALL sugar, preservatives, and chocolate, you will be able to use all the honey you want and will never know he has ADD.

    Cook with it, bake with it, make candies and drinks with it. He will be a whole new person.

    That's what I was wondering! Thanks bunches!
    Logan is a different person when we take him off sugar - only sugar free drinks and such. But he feels so denied that he will actuallly open frosting containers and eat it and then hide the containers. I would like to try honey as an alternative so he can have some sweets.
