Honey Graham Crackers?

Posted by on Apr. 8, 2009 at 2:03 PM

OK I know infants under 1 shouldn't have honey but can they have honey graham crackers?  My son is 10months and we just got an Easter basket in the mail from my father and his wife.  Can my son eat the graham crackers that are in the basket?  He is on table foods and has 6 teeth so I know he would be fine eating something like that but I just don't know if he can eat if because they are honey graham crackers.  So can he eat the honey graham crackers?  Or should I save those for myself?  :)

TIA

yep, it is fine... honey nut cheerios or anything processed with honey in it has killed the spores that make it dangerous raw

From what I've read, it should be ok to give it to your baby, but the Clostridium botulinum, botulism bacteria, are not always killed by pasteurization or cooking.  So personally, I would err to the side of caution.

They can't eat regular honey in a jar, but they can eat things that are made with  honey, such as the graham crackers and honey nut cheerios. I asked my DD doctor because the bread we ate had honey and she said just not regular honey that  other stuff was fine.
