  • Sure. The flavored packets contain a lot of sugar. Better to buy the plain and sweeten yourself. How old is he?

  • 1 yo
    yup
    assuming this isn't the first food you're giving him. he'll love it- it has a lot of sugar and he'll gobble it up

  • I think I would wait if he is only 1 talk to doctor first or maybe a very small amount like 1-2 tablespoons. I believe 1 tablespoon is a serving size for a toddler
