today in micro we learned that we can not feed infants honey because of the bacteria in honey but not only can parents not feed babys honey but also apple juice pear juice and anything that is round, also cows milk. just thought it was good information

I thought it was cool how facts we learned in health and nutrition overlapped into our microbiology lecture. So in health and nutrition we learned that you shouldn't drink low percentage cow's milk before 12 months of age because this could prematurely cause food allergies. I was wondering if there was a certain age at which babies can eat honey. Is it the same as low percentage milk. Do we gain all of our normal flora by twelve months? Just curious if anyone knew.
