This is because, in a lot of books that she read about raising a child, it was mentioned that feeding honey to kids who are less than one year old can be dangerous for them. According to many health websites, honey can contain Clostridium botulinum, spores that can cause infant botulism, a rare but potentially fatal illness. Babies under 12 months of age are at risk, so it is advised not to feed them honey.

However, a lot of people who didn’t know about this criticized her and trolled her for being “woke”.

On the other hand, there were a couple of doctors and medical students who jumped in to support her and her claims. Have a look:

Instead of relying purely on religious traditions, online videos and articles, it is always best to consult with a pediatrist. In case one needs a second opinion, they can always approach different medical professionals for more well-rounded advice, Don’t you think?
