Should I give honey to my baby?

Just imagine: honey contains about 300 different components. Many of them are considered healing – it is not surprising that together they form a product whose useful properties are difficult to find equal.

Honey will help your child cope with colds and protects against infections, soothe and help you sleep, improve your appetite and intestinal function.

The main component of honey (75% of its composition) is sugar, mainly fructose and glucose. They are easily digested and provide the baby’s body with energy.

The second important “participant” is water, and its quality depends on how much it is in honey. If the product of bee works managed to ripen properly, the water in it remains about 18%; if he is “hurried”, the water will be more (22% and above), and the honey will become liquid.

All other components take up only 5–7% of the composition, although their list cannot be called short: mineral substances, enzymes, vitamins, biologically active and other substances.

On the baby’s table, the fragrant “yummy” is gradually appearing as early as 6 months in the composition of the baby porridge, fruit juices and mashed potatoes. And when the baby is one year old, you can sometimes use honey instead of sugar — for example, in compotes, cheesecakes, and casseroles.

Of course, you shouldn’t completely replace sugar with honey – for a child older than a year, 1–2 teaspoons of this delicacy is enough per day, and after 3 years, 2–3 teaspoons.

Amber honey will be for the baby and an excellent medicine. A proven remedy for colds is warm milk with honey, preferably mountain or lime.

Add 2 teaspoons of honey to a glass of milk and give the child a little 3-4 times a day. By the way, the same recipe is useful if in the evenings it is difficult for a baby to sleep.

Does your baby have a cough? It is worth remembering another time-tested advice and cook radish juice with honey.

2 teaspoons of honey are poured into a well prepared in a radish, covered with paper, left for 3-4 hours, and then given to the baby in a teaspoon 4 times a day before meals (this recipe is suitable for children over 3 years old).

With all the amazing virtues of honey, it is important to remember that this product is not suitable for everyone: it causes allergies in some babies. So acquaint the child with a fragrant treat should be very careful, especially if the crumb is among the allergy sufferers.

Honey should not be included in the baby’s menu even if a little one has any diseases related to carbohydrate intolerance (such as galactosemia) – fortunately, such problems are very rare.
