HNZ has brought in UMF 3+. the promoter told me parents want to give manuka for their kids but worry that UMF 5 is too strong.

no lah. Don't bother with UMF 5 for kids. UMF 10 then is effective for healing and maintaining good health.
just that don't give a full tablespoon, 1 small teaspoon is enough.

I buy my manuka honey from here --- http://www.honeycity.com.sg/shop/
can read in the postings all the articles abt umf and manuka

I'm not sure about the dosage but somehow find that even the salesperson will give different opinions when I went to buy recently. I don't feed my kids manuka everyday. Only when dd thinks that she is abit heaty, then she will go help herself. These 2 days, I gave them manuka (only 5+umf) as they are not feeling too well.

Though I don't really remember exactly..but roughly 10+umf for the age of your kids may be too strong.

u can read this article from manuka honey singapore
http://honeycity.com.sg/2016/10/26/eat- ... correctly/

it explains that metal spoon reacts with manuka honey, but the the effect is very slow and insignificant since you only dip your metal spoon inside to scoop out. not like u leave the metal inside whole night.
of course for peace of mind, just use any non-metal spoon ba, since manuka honey so valuable.
i usually just use a plastic spoon

i always buy their taku honey to eat.

most of us shld just eat UMF 10+.

UMF 15+ is quite expensive, and not required unless you have digestive problem, or very poor immunity system. just stick to umf 10+ is good enough =)
