Dangers of honey for babies

  1. It is now known that honey can be dangerous for babies. Because the gastrointestinal tract in babies is not yet properly developed, it can cause infant botulism. Botulism is very dangerous and can be fatal. However, this only applies to babies from 0 to 12 months. However, honey is harmless to pregnant women and unborn babies.

Honey during pregnancy

  1. The spores of Clostridium botulinum are not harmful to a pregnant woman. Because the gastrointestinal system is already sufficiently developed, the spores cannot develop into bacteria. Exceptions apply to pregnant women with an intestinal abnormality, such as Crohn's disease. Also, the spores cannot cross the placenta, so that honey does not pose any danger to the unborn child. It is therefore safe for pregnant women to eat honey. Breastfeeding women can also safely eat honey.
