Salt, sugar & honey should not be given to babies under 1. This is recommended by pediatricians all over the world. A baby's kidney are not well developed and cannot process salt like an adult. This can lead to high amount of sodium in the blood which can be dangerous. Doctors advise against giving honey to a baby until he is an year old. Honey can contain a spore or spores of the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. This can cause a serious but rare form of food poisoning known as botulism.
