I have a 2 and a half year old. The store near us has tiny washington apples that are perfect for him! He can hold it by himself and finish the whole thing.. by whole thing I mean seeds and all. When I laughingly told my mom this (she's very paranoid by the way, so I take what she says with a grain of salt) she said that apple seeds have cyanide in them and it could kill him. I told the doctor he eats the seeds too and told him what my mom said and he said he'd never heard of that before.. that people have been doing it for eons and that the only concern he has was that apple seeds can be sharp if chewed and there's the possibility he could scratch his mouth or his bowels.
Do apple seeds have any negative effects if swallowed? I've since been keeping a closer eye on him while he's eating an apple and also try coring them.
