Have you ever wondered when or if you should give your baby or toddler chocolate?
Chocolate ideally shouldn’t be given before the age of 2 due to the caffeine and sugar content, however, in my experience, most children have had chocolate before this age.
Due to the acidity
, chocolate can worsen digestive problems such as reflux, colic and wind
in chocolate can increase heart rate and disturb a child’s sleep
in chocolate can hinder acceptance of more savoury foods
, cause tooth decay,
and lead to obesity
long term if eaten in excess.
