is this ok?

Would it be okay to give my 9mo. old daughter a few chocolate chips once in a while as a treat? The other day while I was baking I set 2 or 3 on her high chair tray, and she had a blast making a mess & eating them!!

  • Not in my opinion unless you want her hooked on sugar and chocolate at such a young age. I'd give her something else more healthy to eat. She won't know what she's missing. I kept my kids away from sweets as long as possible.

  • Try the gerber graduate yogurt puffs, they're sweet and will melt and you don't have to worry if they're appropriate for her!

  • Chocolate is an allergy trigger food that should not be introduced before age 2
