I give ds(9months) quite a lot. He's started really 'getting' food now and eats quite a lot, not just throwing it around. He's got 7 teeth already and an 8th on its way. I know fruit is really bad for their teeth. His teeth are brushed twice a day but don't know if I should reduce fruit still. This morning for example, he ate a crumpet for breakfast and then half a banana, 4 blueberries, 2 raspberries and a strawberry. Is that ok?
I think that's ok, my GP said its how the fruit is handled if it's mashed or puréed it breaks down the sugar which is worse so smoothies are bad for teeth in large amounts I don't know if it's true. My lo is 7 months and has Apple n pear in porridge and bleverris and mango in yogurt loads of fruit
