Honey to Babies

Honey to Babies

Honey should never be fed to babies. Honey can contain Clostridium botulinum spores, which can cause severe illness and sometimes be fatal. The reason why it’s so dangerous to infants is that they don’t have natural gut flora (yet) to compete with the vegetative Clostridium botulinum cells.
