Traveling on airplanes with children

Listening to your show today, while making rounds between hospitals...someone suggested giving honey to kids to keep them quiet...this should only be done for children over the age of twelve months because of the risk of botulism...honey can contain spores of botulism which sets up in the baby's gut and produces botulism toxin, causing gradual onset of paralysis....obviously will keep the baby quiet, but probably NOT what the parent had in mind.

Love your show, keep up the good work
