    I have read its not a good idea to allow your children under 1 eat honey, but as for eating it while pregnant, i have read its ok to... Babies arent meant to eat it because raw honey can sometime contain a spore that can develop into a nasty toxin, which is really rare but can acually be fatal. Anyway, an adults digestive tract is acidic and doesnt let the toxin grow, but a babies digestive tract isnt acidic and a better environment for it to grow in, although still rare for it to happen. So what I have read is that theres no danger in eating honey if pregnant.
