in II century pediatricians recommended for feeding babies to use honey.It was believed that he has a positive effect on the digestive system of the child.Ancient Egyptian Aesculapius, it was noted that honey is good for the mental and physical abilities.Therefore, it was supposed to give students.The Spaniards now produce a mixture of foods for infants based on honey.Many Russian families Honey is also used as a useful and tasty additive to infant formula.
However, the results of studies conducted by the British Agency for Food standards (FSA), it follows that the systematic consumption of honey to 1.5 children -2 years, in some cases, leads to a rare disease "infant botulism".The poisoning of the organism causes the poison botulinum toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which the immune system is weak ki
