  • BABY? No. My TODDLER has had tasted them once or twice but I don't offer them as a regular snack.

  • Yes, I let miine have them sometimes. Around 10 months her daddy got her Snyders cheese puffs and they are really light and fluffy and disolve really quick. She's 13 months now and from time to time I will buy her cheese twists or Cheetos cheese puffs, she loves them,lol. Very messy tho...

  • LOL! No, i did not. She did not have even a tiny bit of junk until she was about 4. Then she would notice other kids eating crap, so i let her now from time to time eat some junk if the occasion calls for it.

    But, not when she was a baby. I have seen many mothers & friends allow it though. I think that as long as the baby is still eating very healthy, a lil cheeto puff won't kill them.

  • NOOOO... I wont even give my son grain puffs because of all the sugar, why would I give him Cheetos?

  • no... dd is 2 and gets cheetos very rarely but never when she was a baby! I thought you put cheerios to begin with and yes, I let my dd eat cheerios when she was a baby, but cheetos have too much artificial stuff in them with very low to none nutritional value and a LOT of sodium! I preferred something healthier like banana's, apples, peas, broccoli or something along those lines...

  • No one in my house eats that crap in general. Once or twice a year the older kids (7-8-9) might have a few.

  • No. Occasionally he will get the Gerber graduates puffs, but only every once in a while.
