Can I give my 8 month old tinned fruit as finger food?

Is it ok to give my 8 month old ds tinned fruit to try out as finger food. I mean the little tins of Fruitini. Obviously I'd drain the juice off. I think the consistancy would be just right for him to chomp on but was wondering if there was any reason why this option is much worse than fresh fruit. He has fresh fruit often but this would be very convenient from time to time.

Yeh!! I always do it!

I haven't looked, but does it not have extra sugar in the syrup stuff it's in? If not, can't see why not, though mine would probably just drop it everywhere as is quite slippery!

if you use the one in fruit juice then it wont have any extra added sugar

Yeah, there is extra sugar in the syrup but I'd only buy it in juice which is much better and I'd drain it to limit the damage. I guess it would be really slippery but worth a try. He's at the stage where he's dropping everything and then looks down to see where it's gone!!! They are daft aren't they - Tee Hee!
