Warning to Parents

However, remember to check with your pediatrician before giving honey to infants and/or any young children under the age of 1 years old.

The Mayo Clinic warns that wild honey can be a potential source of infant botulism. This is a rare but serious gastrointestinal condition.

The bacteria from the spores can grow and multiply in a baby’s intestines, producing a dangerous toxin.
