From what age can children be fed honey?
Honey should not be given to babies under 12 months of age.
Botulism spores are present in the air, water, earth, fish, eggs, and also in honey. Exposing the infant’s stomach to these bacteria is liable to be harmful. This is also the reason why, for example, it is recommended to boil water that is to be ingested by babies of less than one year.
