Dosage of bee pollen for a seven year old

What would be the appropriate dosage of bee pollen for a child age 9 and 7?


Angela's Comments:

After safely introducing bee pollen to their diet using the technique I describe here:

How to Take Bee Pollen: The Tolerance Test

Now, I've been taking it by the tablespoon daily since I was a child, so I know I can tolerate it very well and I won't be having an adverse reaction. But, if you're new to taking this superfood , I suggest you follow these guidelines to determine your sensitivity to it. Although bee pollen is not a drug, it is possible you could be sensitive to it so it's best that you're cautious the first time you take it.

1) Place one raw bee pollen kernel under your tongue.

2) Let it dissolve completely. It is absorbing rapidly through what is called your mucous membrane directly into your blood stream.

3) If you experience no reaction, place two granules under your tongue.

4) Continue increasing the number of granules under your tongue until you feel confident that you will not experience an allergic reaction.

1 teaspoon per day is an appropriate dose for children of 9 and 7.

Bee healthy,
Angela

Dosage for a 3 year old
by: Anonymous

Hi, what is the dosage for a 3 year-old boy? Thanks!

After starting him out on 1 or 2 granules per day and building up, you can work up to a half tsp per day.

Hi Mackenzie,
I would not recommend giving your child bee pollen through a feeding tube unless you do so under the guidance of a physician.

Bee pollen through a feeding tube?
by: Mackenzie

I have a 4 yo son who I would like to start giving bee pollen. He is fed through a feeding tube so I would like to add a granule a day to his formula.

What would be the reaction I would look for if he is allergic to bee pollen?

Kids taking bee pollen?

by Sherri


What a refreshing site of information. Thank you so much for sharing the knowledge you have.

My 3 children are 11, 7, and 2 years of age. Though we love honey and eat honey daily, we have never tried the bee pollen. Is there a dose guideline for them? I would assume to start them with one granule a day. I am not sure if my 2 yr old would be able to hold one under her tongue however.

Angela's Response:

For kids taking bee pollen, we simply recommend they start out with one granule at a time and chew it. If they show no signs of allergy, we double the amount of granules each day until they work up to a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day. (the more they weigh, the more they can take) Always watch carefully and observe for signs of allergy though because in the rare cases of reaction, we often see people tolerate bee pollen well until the cross a certain dosage threshold and then they get symptoms. I also recommend you let your Doctor know that you are feeding them bee pollen or work with a Naturopathic Doctor.

bee pollen
by: Anonymous

I have been giving my son local honey for 6 years now, he is 7. I'm about to start giving him bee pollen for several reasons. I have been taking bee pollen, local and fresh, for 20 plus years and I believe it helps in meany ways. First, my son is reading and writing,far ahead of the other kids in school. He has little to no allergy problems anytime of the year. I want to believe that raw dark honey has helped him is these ways and many others.

Bee Pollen for toddler?

by Leo
(Antipolo City, Rizal, Philippines)

Our one and a half year old child was having cold so an acquaintance recommended the said product. We bought and tried it to my child but I noticed the tablet is not that soft for him to chew and he might get choked. How my child can take it and is it really appropriate for his age? I you can provide a link to CC Pollen page for instructions that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Angela's Comments:

I would suggest using raw granules with your child. The child can suck or chew on the granules and more importantly, you can really control the dose with the small granules. As with any new food or supplement with a child, you want to start out with very, very small doses of bee pollen. I would suggest one or two granules at a time and then increasing slowly to ensure of no allergy or reaction.

Can my 3 year-old son take raw bee pollen

by Liza Tothpozsi
(Henderson NV USA)

This is Liza
I'd like to ask from you that my 3 year-old son can take raw bee pollen as a dietary supplement? He gets sick 5-7 times a year - like cold or lung issue. We live in Las Vegas and the city's pollens sometimes just too much for us!!!!
I am waiting your answer. Thanks a lot.

Angela's comments:

Hi Liza,
There is no reason why your son can't take bee pollen, provided he doesn't have a severe allergy to pollens. Start him out with one or two granules and if he tolerates them well, increase the amount you give to him by a few granules a day until you reach a teaspoon.

Hope that helps,
Angela

Thanks, Erin

Is it safe to give kids aged 3 1/2 and 5 pollen, propolis & royal jelly?

by Astra F.

Hi Angela

Is it safe to give bee pollen, propolis and royal jelly to kids ages 3.5 and 5?

Thanks
Astra

Hi Astra,
It should be but you should always exercise caution with children. Start out with very, very small amounts and only introduce one product at a time to the child. Monitor for any type of allergic reaction at all times. Let your doctor know what you are doing as well, even though they may not know what pollen, propolis or royal jelly is!

Are the bee pollen capsules safe for kids?

Are the bee pollen capsules safe for kids?

Angela's Comments:

Yes they are but introduce small amounts very slowly to ensure that you're child doesn't have a bad reaction to the bee pollen. It is easier to do this with the raw bee pollen granules as you can do it one granule at a time.

Are the bee pollen capsules safe for kids?
by: Erica

I was wondering the exact same question. Just wanted to do you start to increase granules per day or every week.. Not sure about that..I know its important to pay attention to symptoms and make sure they are not having a reaction. Thanks again I just love this website.. Ready to start my kids on a healthy journey as well as my self :)

Angela's Comments:

Yes, you can increase granules everyday. But be cautious - only increase by a few granules at a time as we've seen the odd reaction occur once the dose was increased dramatically. So increase by a few granule a day until you reach their full working dose. Glad you found us!

How much bee pollen should I give my 8 and 4 year old?

by Erin C.

Hi there, Just have a question for you about bee pollen and children. I'm looking at ordering some of your bee pollen for my family, mainly my husband. I do have 2 children 8 & 4. Am I able to give them some as well? If so how much do I start with, and what is the ideal that we are working towards? They are both very healthy with no known allergies to anything.
Thanks you in advance for your time!

Erin


HI Erin,

Great question. I would suggest you start out with just one or two granules with your kids. Follow the protocol here:
