Can a toddler eat an apple?
A toddler can eat an apple, but should not be fed whole apples. They should be given small pieces of the fruit so that they don’t choke on the seeds and core.
Toddlers are generally able to eat whole fruits, but they shouldn’t be fed whole fruits. They should instead be given small pieces of the fruit so that they don’t choke on the seeds and core.
When Can Toddlers Eat Whole Apples?
The answer to this question is that it depends on the child’s age. While toddlers can eat whole apples, they should be careful not to eat too many in one sitting.
Children under the age of 4 should not eat whole apples unless their doctor has permitted them. Children aged 4-6 years old can eat 1/2 an apple a day without any problems. Children aged 6-12 years old can have up to 2 apples a day without any problems.
Toddlers are still learning how to chew and digest food properly and they are also more likely to choke on large pieces of fruit such as whole apples.
