Can Supplements Containing Dates And Honey Be Consumed By An 11 Month Old Baby?
, is the u003cstrong u003eExtra Food HPAI u003c / strong u003e safe for consumption of children after 11 months? The main composition is the date palm juice and honey. Manufacturers claim that the product is safe for consumption starting from babies aged 6 months, while to my knowledge new honey is safe for consumption by children over 1 year. Please enlighten me. thanks.
Basically supplements are not mandatory. Food supplements are only given if necessary, for example when the child has difficulty getting nutrients from daily food or based on the consideration of the doctor who examined the child.
As for honey, it's true that honey should be given to children over 1 year of age. This is because giving honey to children under 1 year can increase the risk of honey poisoning / botulism, tooth decay, and obesity.
For now, you can give only the original dates, but enough to the child. When the child is 1 year old, you can reconsider giving palm juice and honey or a food supplement that contains both compositions. But you should still consult a doctor to ascertain whether your child really needs supplements or is enough from breast milk and daily breast milk.
Hope it helps you,
