    Default Honey roasted pumpkin - is it safe for a baby?

    I know babies can't have raw honey, but if I toss pumpkin in honey and garlic then roast it, does that remove whatever risk there is with honey?
    TIA :-)

    My paed assured me that if the honey's cooked, that it's perfectly safe.

    The risk with honey is spores that can cause botulism in infants. Roasting honey should be fine. I just wouldn't give babies honey in say a sslow cooker meal, it probably never reached a high enough temp.
