  • Yes I would. My DD just turned 10 months but for the past month I have been feeding her whatever I am eating (including if I am having tater tots with my meal). The only things I don't give her yet is honey and nut products, and I try to stay away from the berries and chocolate. Otherwise, as long as she is getting mainly fruits and vegetables and everything else in moderation, why wouldn't it be ok? I just watch and make sure she doesn't have a hard time chewing something and if she does, I don't give her any more of that.

  • Sure, why not? By nine months they should be able to eat a wide varity of foods. I just wouldnt feed them tater tots for a meal, but a few bites as a snack or with a meal would be ok.

  • Me personally....no....there's no nutritional value in a tater tot.

  • I let my nephew naw on French Fries. Fries are about the same thing as a tot. So yeah

  • Sure. My son has them from time to time.. but only like 1-2 for the same reason others have pointed out, not the most healthy food choice.

  • No. There's no reason for him to have them. Sure he can get snacks and treats but tater tots? No..

  • Why not? It's a potato product. Just make sure they're baked and not fried...they really don't need that much extra grease. As long as it's not all the time. As with everything else in the world, moderation is key.

  • Maybe...why not? If I'm having some for my dinner, I may cut up one or two for my dd to taste.
