Did Daycare Spike Candy to Calm Kids?

Posted on December 16th, 2009 by Kelley Luckstein

Police are investigating allegations that workers at a suburban Cincinnati church daycare slipped children a dietary supplement hidden in candy to help them sleep at nap time. CBS affiliate WKRC-TV in Cincinnati reports some workers from the Covenant Apostolic Church told police on Sunday that they saw fellow employees give the hormone melatonin to children as young as two months old. The Mayo Clinic says the over-the-counter melatonin helps control sleep and wake cycles and is not FDA approved or regulated.
