Introducing New Foods to Your Baby

Introducing new foods to your baby is a very fun and exciting time! Honey, on the other hand is not a new food you should be experimenting with until they are at least 1 year of age! Not only are extra sweeteners not appropriate at this time in your child’s life, but honey can contain spores of toxic bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. Honey is a great natural way to sweeten food and beverages for adults and older children, but in children less than a year of age honey can cause serve foodborne illness and can potentially be life threatening. Honey is a great product to have in the pantry but hold off feeding it to your child until they reach their first birthday!
