I know that you're not allowed to give babies Honey until they are over 1 year old but what about Jam? Are there any age limitations on Jam?

dd2 is 8 months old and likes buttered toast to chomp on as a finger food but would it be ok to put a tiny bit of jam on it just for a change?

Jam is absolutely fine. It's just fruit and sugar! Honey is potentially problematic as in very, very rare cases it has been contaminated with bacteria. Having said that, ds had it from about this age - bad mummy!

unprocessed honey can contain minute amounts of botulism... has absolutely NO effect on adults and older children, but in rare cases may affect young babies.

Jam, on the other hand, is perfectly safe!
