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. Caffeine in chocolate can increase heart rate and disturb a child’s sleep. Sugar in chocolate can hinder acceptance of more savoury foods, cause tooth decay, and lead to obesity long term if eaten in excess.
