    Honey is fine to eat when pregnant, it's babies under 18 months who can't have it. Something to do with spores. Enjoy xx

    I eat it.

    Unless you of your OH has an allergy to stuff like honey, nuts etc then you can eat it. I eat everything, we have no allergies here.

    The only thing I haven't had is a good runny egg, but thats just cause the bacteria can make you get food poisoning (very slim) and the food poisoning is what can cause issues.

    Honey's fine for us to eat during pregnancy.

    I'm stuffed up with a stinking head cold, and the pharmacist recommended lemon and honey in hot water, or in decaf tea (mmm, I love that!)
