avoid for under a year after that it should be fine

but I wouldn't give it to a baby / toddler .. its basically sugar and its unneccessary to accustom them to it

they say not to give it before 1 year old. i honestly can't remember why though.

I thought i might make a fruit pudding with a bit of sponge on the top with honey instead of sugar, but you're probably right not really necessary...

It's OK if they're over 1 though.
