I recommend introducing these as soon as you find them in your supermarket. These tiny seedless grapes were a total find on my Saturday afternoon market run. Baby Maria loves her fruit and these are perfect for her tiny fingers to grasp. Just wash and serve. None of this cutting and then still freaking out that she might choke.
Sometimes people ask me if such and such thing is safe to feed their 8 month old. The answer to that question is "yes, no, maybe so." First, I am not a nutritionist. Second, I don't follow too many rules. Third, even if I do follow food restriction rules in North America it all goes down the drain when I go to South America, where fruits are different and other restrictions are the norm.
I stated feeding baby Maria strawberries when she was 7 months. Some people like to wait until they're 1 year. I gave Enzo mangoes for the first time when he was 7 months and he had a horrible allergic reaction. I thought I had ruined him for life. Nope, not yet at least. When he was a little of over 2 years old someone feed him mangoes and he was fine.
This is my rough guide on fruits that are safe to feed babies 6-12 months. I like the "wait three days rule" before introducing a new food but normally I do a "wait 1 day rule". My personal experience has been that if a certain food gives my kids an allergic reaction, even a mild rash, or an upset stomach I will know within 24 hours. However, as a parent do whatever feels most comfortable to you.
