  • Those things are okay in moderation. Just watch his bowel movements.

  • If he isn't have digestive problems it should be OK. The only thing I would worry about is his teeth. I've read about raisins and other dried fruit being a problem because they are sugary and it sticks to the teeth. but if he flosses and brushes after he eats them there should be no problem. It is nice that he prefers a nutritious snack.

  • my daughter is the same way thankfully. but the docs told me it was fine as long as she dosn't get the runs from it. keep it in moderation then watch if you give him juices, my girl drinks flavored water she eats enough fruit to not have fruit juices. if he likes raisens try diff fruits. good start to a healthy life style

  • Your child is fine. Just keep doing what you are doing, make sure you are offering him a variety of foods though including vegetables.
