I saw another debate the de-evolved into a honey vs. sugar situation. This was for a toddler under the age of 2! I personally don't give my child honey or sugar in any quantifiable amount(she does have multigrain cheerios every now and then). I've always been told by doctors not to give honey to a child under a year old, but after that it's ok in very small quantities. I've also been told that raw honey has healing properties and can be beneficial for people with seasonal allergies. It's lower on the Glycemic Index, so the body processes it differently than sugar. What do you ladies think?
