    I have been doing this since I was 5 years old. When she became older, she began to add honey to coffee and tea.

    Let me add my own pointless personal comments to everyone else's, on the topic of honey.

    I like chestnut honey for its distinctive flavour. Particularly good with Greek yoghourt.

    As to health effects, the chief one that is properly documented seems to be that in infants <1yr old honey can in rare cases give them botulism, which is often fatal.

    Enjoy.

    • Recommending people eat poison, like this poster advocates, is a bannable offense.
    Thanks for the advice. In return, I would advise you to go for a soothing walk in the woods, find a Jack-in-the-Pulpit (wild flower), and chow-down on the raw roots - fantastic result!!

    And that would be against the rules. Trying to land someone in the hospital by knowingly recommending a poisonous plant to eat? Nice going ditz...

    That's kinda low. Surely the concern for hapless readers getting advice on eating poison is more important than some supposed pissing contest, yes?

    Explain why honey can give infants botulism?

    The short answer is that botulism spores are found in honey. Normal, healthy immune systems have no probme with it, but an infant's immune system is not mature enough to handle it.
