  • As long as your baby knows to crunch them....kix being round, instead of flat like cheerrios, if swallowed can block the airway!

  • Are you worried about the honey or the cereal?

  • I wouldn't feed him/her anything with honey until the doctor said I could

  • I did internet search and the general warning is not to give honey to babies under 1 year old. I think the warning is for raw honey anyway...not something that's been processed like in cereal. I would go for it!

  • I held off on anything with honey. What they are worried about i clostridium botulinum which if I remember correctly from my microbiology classes is a spore. The only thing that kills spores is pressure cooking, which I doubt is done to boxed cereals. It's not likely to hurt him, but I would wait until after a year.
