  • im not saying its great for them, but i have lol my 9 month old loves anything thats cheesy...but i only let him have like 2 or 3. and he's only eaten it like 3 times from 8months to now (he turns 10 months in a week). but i say, if it helps calm then down while you get a healthier snack....i'm all for it lol

  • I haev a 5 month old and right now I am committed to only having my son eat healthy foods as a child so he will continue this on later in life. That being said, when I actually have a baby that can eat table foods and is having a tantrum, we will see how well I do with this :)

  • Well this is how my friend started out and now her son is morbidly obese. Good luck once they get a taste for junk so young they turn into gluttons.

  • The earlier you can start the junk food the better, that way later on down the road they wont want anything healthy... That stuff is way to expensive anyway.

  • 1 or 2 would be fine as a little treat... but I wouldn't give my baby a bunch of junk food.
    They do make Gerber ones too... which are a little healthier... but still not that good, when my son gets those he gets about 6.

  • My 9 month old loves the Cheeto puffs. I give him them when he is teething really bad. The salt and rough texture helps to make the teeth break through quicker. Everything in moderation is the key :)

  • Its not a good idea stick with healthy snacks carrots cheese sticks and fruit also if u give juice make sure its all natural with no high fructos corn syrup stuff like chips and all sugar juices can really cause obesity along with other highly dangerous health problems like diabetes and heart disease
