Honey story

Honey story

Honey can benefit only if the baby appears in the diet after 3 years. By this time, digestive glands producing enzymes that cleave this product are already formed in the child’s gastrointestinal tract. And the immune system “learns” not to pass allergens into the body.

But even under favorable circumstances, honey is contraindicated in babies who, for some other reason, have already experienced an allergic reaction. And even in the event that allergies in any form are not affected by the child itself, but by some of its close relatives, the introduction of honey into the diet of the crumbs will have to be abandoned, and most likely for a long time.

If the baby is not at risk, doctors advise giving him honey. After all, it is one of the most useful carbohydrates.

It contains about 300 necessary components and most of all (up to 90% of the composition) – sucrose. Under the influence of the enzymes of bee saliva, it is split into fructose and glucose, which are absorbed better than similar substances contained in refined sugar from beets or cane. In addition, honey contains useful salts of potassium, calcium, sodium, chlorine, iron, fluorine, zinc, copper, manganese and iodine.

It contains many B vitamins and organic acids (tartaric, citric, malic, lactic, oxalic).

Enter honey in the diet of the child should be gradually. First let the baby lick it off the tip of a teaspoon. If in a couple of days the allergy does not show up, you can offer the crumbs, porridge, sweetened with honey, or pancake with honey-fruit filling.

Then you should observe the condition of the baby for several more days. And just by making sure that there are no allergic reactions at all, you can include honey in the child’s diet as a natural and healthy sweetness. Up to 5 years, honey should be given to the baby in 1–2 days, 5 g each.

There are several types of honey in nature and on the market, and not all of them are equally useful. Before buying it is better to take into account a few points.

Bees extract honey from either plant nectar or honeydew or honeydew. In the first case, we are talking about honey flower, in the second – about honeydew. The latter can be monoflerny (from one plant) and polyfleral.

The first variety is considered less allergenic, so it’s better to start dating. Among monofler varieties, lime, buckwheat, heather and chestnut are considered to be particularly useful.

Natural honey should smell good. Lack of smell indicates the presence of extraneous additives.

The separation of honey into layers suggests that sugar syrup was added to it. Quality honey is wound on a spoon with folds or long threads; the bad drips from it in small drops.
