I know they're for teething, but you have to assume that the munchkins will eat a little of the biscuit in the chewing process and it's worrying to see honey in there. In the UK you're advised not to feed babies honey until they're over 1 year old as some varieties of honey have botulism in it and babies being little, their immune systems aren't fully developed enough to protect against it.

Babies under one year should not have honey, either raw or baked into a product. Honey may contain botulism spores. These spores are very heat resistant and can survive even baking. Once inside an infants gut, which is still at a low acidity level, they can multiply and grow and produce a potent toxin that can be life threatening. After about a year, the acidity level of the GI tract as risen to a level that is inhospitable to the spores and renders them harmless. I almost died of butulism when I was a student (18 y/o) traveling in Spain. Be safe!

This recipe is obviously for children over 1yr of age, as it has several ingredients that are only suggested for children over the the age of 1 year. Please do not serve this biscuit to your infant, who would do better with a water and rice flour type biscuit.
