honey question Lock Rss

Well my advice wouldnt be any good really to you as I have been giving my 15mth old honey on his dummy for awhile now.I have heard not to though but I am pretty sure that that was only to bubs up to the age of 6 mths.Sorry just didnt want to leave you hanging without a reply so hopefully your next lot of advice will be a bit more helpful,

Could also use golden syrup or maple syrup as alternatives smile


Also agave syrup smile



I make baked muesli bars and I don't use honey. I put a can of condensed milk in it instead smile

If you're in Australia and its local honey I don't think you need to be too strict. I've given dd a little at around 9mths but have not avoided it for any reason other than I do didn't want her getting too used to sweet things.

Mmm could you post the recipe for this please? Sounds good, and I have a tin of condensed milk just calling to be used!

As for the OP... I thought the recommended age was 1 as well, but I'm obviously one of those bad mums, because my 10 month DD often has big mouthfuls of daddy's porridge just dripping with honey. Don't think she swallows too much though if that makes things better! She's not a porridge fan, but we always give it a go anyway. smile

3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 x 395g tin condensed milk
1 cup of flavouring of choice eg. sultanas, finely chopped dried fruit, dates, chopped or flaked nuts, choc chips, mini m&m's, pumpkin or sesame seeds

- mix all ingredients together
- place into a large lasanga/ slice dish lined with baking paper
- bake at 100 degrees for 1 hour
- slice into bars

This is the recipe I use but I sometimes play with the cooking time as the first time I made them, they were very sticky.

BTW...it must be healthy...it has oats!

Oats cancel out any sugar there is. Thats my theory anyway, and I'm sticking to it smile
