The Effect Of Giving Honey To Infants Under 1 Year Of Age?
I give my sister honey before I know that honey is not good, but I only apply honey to the kompengnya just a little, whether my sister just checked it out?
Hello Adit, Thank you for the question.
How old is your sister? Honey has a variety of nutrients that can indeed help maintain the health of children. Honey contains various nutrients such as carbohydrates, B vitamins, vitamin C, amino acids, iron, zinc, potassium, and antioxidants (flavonoids and polyphenols). Because of this nutritional content, honey can be useful for dealing with coughs and colds, helps the immune system, helps the health of the digestive tract, and helps wound healing. Although it has a number of health benefits, including for children, not all children can be given honey. Honey should not be given to children under 1 year. Honey contains the bacterium Clostridium botulinum which can cause poisoning in children under 1 year, known as botulism. This can occur because children under 1 year do not have an optimal immune system and a strong digestive tract. Botulism can be fatal for children under 1 year.
For now, please you and your parents to monitor your sister's condition. If you find symptoms of difficult bowel movements, weakness, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, or cry not as loud as usual, please immediately take your sister to the nearest hospital for further examination and treatment. In the future, avoid giving anything to your sister without your parents' knowledge.
Hopefully this information helps you.
