Daughter feeling a bit rough after jumping in lakes and all sorts on her school weekend away. Hoping this remedy that I gave her earlier will sort her tummy and general feeling of being unwell… Honey + lemon water: Both honey and lemon have significant ability to inhibit the growth of microbes that can cause infection.

In addition, a growing number of studies have found honey to be an effective cough suppressant and sleep aid during a cold, especially in children. [healthline.com]
