I know you're not supposed to give a baby honey, but what about honey nut Cheerios?

You're not supposed to give raw honey, pasturized is fine. Honey cooked onto food is fine.

It has nothing to do with allergies.

Something about not being able to digest the honey right.

I'd say go for it, but that's just me.

 This. & it's fine to give it after 1 year.

Quoting MissLinn:

You're not supposed to give raw honey, pasturized is fine. Honey cooked onto food is fine.

raw honey can carry botulism. in a healthy adult, it's not a big deal.  in a small child or infant, it can be deadly.

Pasteurization doesn't kill all spores, so that's just false. I would wait to give it. I wouldn't offer sweet cereals to young children anyway.

It's baked in, so it's not raw honey.  It's fine.
