Can A 12 Month Old Baby Less Than 3 Days Be Given Honey Flavored?

, my baby is 12 months old and less than 3 days old. Can you give honey flavored milk? Because it says the baby should not drink honey if it is not 1 year old

1 Answer:

Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com

For babies less than 1 year old, honey is not recommended. This is caused by:


 Honey often has the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The manifestation of this infection is muscle paralysis. In children over 1 year, generally the immune system is already higher so that bacteria can be easily destroyed by the body's own immune system. But in children less than 1 year, the risk of infection is higher because of higher endurance Tooth decay due to high sugar levels Obesity. The sweet taste of honey can trigger children to get used to the sweet taste and prefer sweet foods to continue, and of course at risk for obesity. For this reason, honey in any form and mixture should not be given before the age of 1 year.

As for maintaining the health of children aged over 6 months that need to be done:
 Inadequate consumption of nutrients, of course with breast milk / formula milk that can be tolerated and MPASI. Stimulation of its development Avoid from people who are diseased so as not to be infected, given the body's immune system is still low.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
