Can my baby eat Raisins

From +1 year

Are raisins healthy for children?

Raisins are dried grapes, which are higher in sugar but also higher in certain minerals like copper, iron and also vitamin B6. They are also a good source of fiber and antioxidants. The high sugar content means you should not serve raisins as a daily snack and always give preference to fresh fruits. However, when eaten in moderation they can be beneficial for your child's health. Be careful since raisins, like all dried fruits, form a risk of choking due to their sticky texture and round shape.

How to serve raisins

Before the age of 18 months we advise to not serve whole raisins. You can soak them and include them in baked goods or porridge, but make sure to blend or crush them before.
