Can my daughter eat crisps?!

My daughter is 1 1/2 years old and when I eat crisps she always seems to want one - should I give her some? I don’t know if she is the right age yet and I can’t find any research on it...

I don't see why not. They can be salty so limit the amount. Or buy the organix baby ones as they have fewer ingredients and less salt. Quavers /pom bears melt in the mouth

Like anything the odd one shouldn't hurt but as crisps are full of "empty"calories and contribute to tooth decay I'd avoid them if you can. Also pop "acrylamide" and crisps into Google and see what you think about eating them yourself...

Meh I'd still eat them and roast potatoes!

Maybe you could start with just a few of the “Pom bears” crisps since they are made for children, slightly better than another brand for example not aimed specifically at kids? Just a suggestion but I don’t see anything wrong with a small treat now and then
