How many bananas are too many?

My son (2.5 years) loves them. He'd eat them all day if I let him. I only let him have 2 during the day (1/2 with breakfast, 1/2 with lunch and 1/2 for 2 snacks). Anyone know if it's going to harm him if I let him have more?

  • I give my girls one a day with breakfast or snack... One day they ate the whole bunch the day after we bought them.. No problems.... but no more bananas until next week

  • Great question! My daughter loves bananas too...she eats at least 1 a day, sometimes 2, and has at times eaten 3 in one day!!! She has had no problems with constipation...and I ran it by the pediatrician...and he thinks its great, had no problems with it!
