Hello advisory team, my child is 10 months, I read the newspaper to see the great use of honey, I want to buy it for my child to use, not knowing his age can use it?
For children under 1 year old, absolutely should not use honey including the use of honey tongue for children because at the age of under 1 year, the child's digestive system is weak, if swallowed honey, it is easy to be affected. by toxin clostridium botulinum, a bacterium found in honey, when poisoned by this bacterium can cause poisoning.
Children from 12 months of age and older, the use of honey is highly safe, but should only be used in small amounts not used arbitrarily and often because honey contains sweet sugar, which can cause baby tooth decay. , babies are prone to early puberty. Daily dose of up to 30g is enough.
