Ha! I read the title of this thread and instantly imagined all three on a sandwich at once and had to investigate. I'm such a dag.
Both my kids have had all 3 before they turned 1, probly around 7/8 months. Neither had a problem. If there is no family history of allergys go for it.
Why IS honey so bad??
Apparently honey contains a natural toxin that contains botulism and it's thought in babies under 1 their immune system is too weak to fight it, it is very rare ( sort of like the no soft cheese rule in pregnancy, some women do some don't ) except most people don't want to risk food poisoning in their babies!
Any history of food allergies?
Both sides of dds family don't have any food allergies so she had peanut butter (smooth) well before 1. Think she tried jam around 10 mnths (not real good for them though) and she's had honey that's been cooked on baked veg and baked ham but I havnt given it to her straight yet. She's 18 mnths. But she has a low immune system so knowing my luck shed probably catch the rare honey virus
I agree with PP's - all fine after 1 but honey and jam in moderation. Honey is just as bad for their teeth.
I gave DS ricotta and mashed banana on toast this morning and he gobbled it. I put a bit of honey on DD's and she was equally impressed.
