Children and Molasses

Posted by Comfort (Chicago) on 10/18/2006

MY QUESTION IS THAT CAN CHILDREN TAKE MOLASSES? AND IF SO WHAT DOSAGE, AND ALSO HOW DO ONE STORE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AFTER IT'S BEEN OPENED ? REFRIGERATE OR NOT?

Dear Comfort: One teaspoon of black molasses per day for children is a reasonable dose. It is the same dose as that of a cough syrup, so I would assume it to be safe. Kids drinking soda pop for a whole week is equivalent to a pound of sugar. Therefore it would be safe to assume that avoiding soda pop and sweets and taking a relatively moderate dose of molasses of one teaspoon is not a large amount.

After opening ACV, it is safer to put them in the refrigerator.
