    Question LO had a lil bit of honey

    i gave my lo 2 graham crackers todays and then i was looking at the box a lil bit later and noticed that they were honey graham crackers and that the box says made with real honey. my lo is 11 months old...could this make her sick?

    man i feel sooo stupid for not noticing earlier that the box says honey on it!

    Oh, IKWYM! I did that SAME thing with my DD1 at about that age. She was fine and I'm sure your lo will be too, but just watch him/her carefully.

    hmmm, I'm not too sure about this personally

    but I just did a quick search at Dr. Sears' site and found this

    ETA:
    quote from that link
    The recommendation is to avoid RAW honey under a year old. Cereals or graham crackers might be made with honey but should be okay for an infant under one year.

    Thanks for posting the Dr Sears quote! I was looking at all the organic/natural baby snacks last weekend and everything had honey in it. I was wondering the same thing as the OP.
