As i have heard that honey is beneficial for many things. That's why i have started giving honey to my 2 years old baby. But someone also told that it is not for under 5 years. So i want to know that is it bad or good for 2 years old baby.

Generally it's not recommended before 1 but best to wait till 2 because honey contains botulism.

No I have never heard that it is bad for a child under five so I wouldn't worry and if you want to give it to you child go for it just maybe don't give it to him all the time as it is beneficial for a few things according to many people but isn't the healthiest thing on earth.

Every now and then I give my son toast with honey for breakfast on a special occasion or on a treat! And he is only 16 months but he loves it and its never done any harm to him!

Good luck.
