Q.

Honey

Dr, my son( 5yr old) is allergic to pollen and bee stings...and some mild food allergies and asthma. I thought of getting a very popular vitamin that contains honey for him. This vitamin is highly advisable for children with lung problems....Would it be save for my son to drink/eat honey? Ps...Can a young child of 16 months also use this vitamin?

Your son should be able to eat honey.Your 16 month old baby should be able to have honey now as well.
