Pregnant and honey
Honey is dangerous for babies. Honey can contain spores of clostridium that can develop into toxin-producing bacteria in the underdeveloped intestines of babies. Although this risk is small, the consequences of clostridial infection in babies can be very serious and even fatal. That is why it is indicated on a honey jar that the product is not suitable for children under one year. But what about honey during pregnancy? Are there any dangers for the baby if it is still in the mother's womb?
Honey during pregnancy
The spores of Clostridium botulinum cannot reach the baby during pregnancy. As a result, honey does not pose a danger to the baby during pregnancy. Also, Clostridium spores cannot develop into toxin-producing bacteria in a pregnant woman's gastrointestinal tract. There is therefore no reason to avoid honey during pregnancy.
