Does your 2 yr old eat hot dogs?

I thought this was funny. My baby will be 2 next week. I am working on eating clean so changing the way we eat. Not that I ever served a ton of hot dogs but we have not had a hot dog in our house in a LONG time. So the sitter serves my 23mos old a hot dog and she says she just looks at it then looks at her(the sitter) like back and fourth for 5minutes. She tries to pick it up but isn't sure how to eat it till finally she just gives up without a bite and pushes it away! LOL I was like she has never had a hot dog and honestly probably doesn't know what they are! I thought it was funny.

  • No. They are a choking hazard if not cut and they are loaded with nitrates. My 3 and a half year old hasn't even tasted one yet.

  • haha, I know there are some ok ones out there but we just don't have them around so she's never had one. maybe when she's old enough to eat them like a real hotdog. I'm trying to cut down on salts in her diet.

  • I wouldn't give it to my DD. I do enjoy a hot dog now and then but I always pay for it. The nasty burps alone are reason enough not to eat them. It just gives me indigestion.

  • Buy organic hot dogs and you won't have to worry about all the crap added into them. IF you cut them up properly and MONITOR your kid while eating they won't choke. Amazing huh?

  • My daughter hasn't ever tried one because we just don't eat them that often. I might consider getting some at the store today, hmmmm.

  • my DD doesnt like them at all. i think its a texture thing w/ her. ive served them to her on occasion but unless she's super hungry she just stares at it then throws it off her high chair.
