DH comes home and informs me that HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) is BAD.

Woot! That is awesome Anna!

We've tried to avoid it in some things - they syrup and catsup I buy for the kids, BBQ sauce for DH - but I know it's still lurking in so many things, like our bread.

Oh, so many products! Right now I'm having trouble finding a cough syrup without HFCS!

It is all natural cough syrup, that contains no HFCS.

Have you tried essential oils in lieu of cough meds? A friend told me that she uses something called "raven" on her son and it does a fantastic job of calming his cough. I also found this which has some home remedies / recipes~
