  • Never thought about that. I give it to my 2 year old. Only I peel it like an orange and take off all the stringy fiberous white stuff off the outside of the sections. Just give her the pulp. That's how I eat it, so that's how she eats it too.

  • I disagree with 6 months, that seems a little young to me.

  • Preschool

    Half the grapefruit. Cut sections. Put generous brown sugar on the top. Put under broiler for about 5 minutes until the sugar is brown and bubbly. Top the middle with a marachino cherry. The heat takes the sugar down in and sweetens the whole thing.

  • Um, never thought of it. My son is 14 yrs old and has never had a grapefruit. I don't like them and never think to buy them.

  • The stringy white stuff is vitamin C I think. That or vitamin D. Either way, it is good for you.
