Too much fruit?

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Too much fruit?

Postby pimento » 08 Sep 2012, 07:16

Eva loves fruit. Upon waking she had a banana, a plum and 2 kiwis, all of which she asked for. This is pretty typical. On an average weekend day lately she will probably also have a 1/2 punnett of blueberries, an apple and a peach and/or nectarine.

This is in addition to normal meals.

DH and I always joke she has more of her 5-a-day then we do...

I guess I'm not *too* bothered as she tends to have more pudding-y type things at nursery after dinner and tea in addition to fruit once in a while, but thought I'd ask anyway.

Tbh I have no idea if it's bad or not - if she doesn't have tummy pain or really bad poos or wind I would say enjoy it while it lasts!

T eats similar amounts of fruit with no ill effects. And DH has replaced all of his own snacks with fruit (like he'll take 2 apples, a peach, a banana, and some watermelon to work), is happy and losing belt notches.

Agree with sweetcheeks - my guess is you may be back here in a year or so, worrying about your toddler who's not eating veg or fruit and only chomping on potatoes and chicken (or something like that).
