  • My son LOVES popcorn shrimp. He's 25 months. I think it depends on the kid. Does he have any other medical conditions that could be relevant? Any other allergies? If you are super concerned you can ask your doctor but I don't think it would hurt to try as long as he is healthy :)

  • If there are no seafood allergies in the family, go for it. At that age my kids were eating everything we ate.

  • If you want him to have mercury, then go for it. (sigh)
