Is honey suitable for infants?
Only for babies above 12 months old. The reason for this is that honey has been identified as a risk factor for botulism. The bacteria produce toxins that can be dangerous, even fatal to infants. Infants haven't developed enough of the intestinal microflora to sufficiently inhibit growth of the bacteria.

Honey is NOT recommended for children less than 1 year of age because of the chance of contacting botulism poisoning. After that age, you may give honey in moderation. A… matter of fact, honey is a great way to subdue an irritating cough.
Something you can throw and bang to take your anger out on.
You shouldn't give honey to infants under 12 months of age. There are two reasons for this: 1. Honey is almost pure sugar. Infants don't need the extra sugar, and delicate d…igestive systems could struggle to cope with it. 2. There is a risk, albeit a very small one, that there could be botulinum spores in honey. Honey is a natural bactericide and fungicide, but botulinum spores can survive in honey. There would not be enough to affect an older child or an adult, but it could affect a young baby. It's not worth the risk.
After the child is one year old.
maybe during summer because that's when pollenation usually starts. maybe during summer because that's when pollenation usually starts.
No, it can't, assuming you're intending to drink this instead of having a meal. Healthy weight reduction involves eating fewer calories than you burn (or burning more calori…es than you eat) while still providing the body with the balanced nutrients that it needs, including protein, minerals and vitamins, as well as dietary fiber. Honey is a high GI (glucose index) carbohydrate like sugar. It does not provide proteins. Lemon juice does not provide all the vitamins the body needs. It's almost like a diet of sugar water and vitamin C pills. If you really want to lose weight, become more physically active (walking, cycling, etc for several hours per week). Socialize with other physically active people who enjoy running or cycling. More exercise and better eating go together. Don't skip meals, it's counterproductive. Keep you portions modest but make sure you get enough vegetables and lean protein. Cut out fat and simple, high-GI carbohydrates such as sugar, bread, pastries, white rice, etc. Cut down alcohol and sweetened soft drinks. Aim for a slow (1 kg / 2 lb per month) but steady weight drop within a mid to long term time frame such as 6-12 months to make it sustainable.
Honey can be contaminated by botulism toxin, produced by bacteria and the same chemical used to perform the botox procedure.

I believe it's because of the possibility that honey could contain some bacteria that an infant's system isn't ready to deal with but is harmless to older children and adults.…
There are yeasts/ fungi that can grow in honey- babies have not yet developed defenses against them. It can be very unhealthy to feed honey to babies.
is it I-Valex-1, or Ketonex-1, or Neocate Infant, or Propionic acidemia
because vegan's do not eat produce that comes from an animal and honey is made by bees.
