Honey for Children
Not yet published
The emzymes in honey helps the intestines digest the sugar in honey. A pound of honey (454g) is 82% sugars.
Giving honey to young children (older that one year of age) instead of refined sugar has the effect of making less work for the intestine. It is thanks to the natural enzymes within the honey that aid digestion¹.
However feeding honey to infants (under one year old) should be avoided. The baby's immature digestive system is not developed enough to handle the active elements in raw or unpasturised honey.
Here are six benefits of honey in children's diet²:
Relief from cough & cold
Promotion of healthy digestive system
Helps heal wounds faster
Natural supplier of multiple vitamins
Strengthens immune system
