Grapes and Raisins

Grapes and Raisins For Your Baby

In case you didn't know, raisins are dried grapes. Raisins are nature's candy as they are packed with sugar, and children love them. If your child doesn't have many teeth, they tend to come out whole on the other end. Grapes are a choking concern because there is a risk of them getting lodged in the throat. Just cut up your grapes in quarters so the little ones will have an easier time eating them. In addition, you may have to peel grapes for your child if his teeth aren't developed yet.

Pesticides in grapes is a problem when you are buying grapes from South America. The grapes from other countries can be sprayed with non-FDA approved pesticides and can be in high concentrations. When possible, buy organic grapes and/or grapes from the United States.
