My daughter (late June bday) still only has her front 4 teeth on top and bottom. I have been hesitant to give her things that I think she won't be able to chew or things I think she might choke on. One day her sitter said she had pretzels which I hadn't even thought of giving her yet. Another day at a Christmas party someone gave her a wheat thin cracker. Then I hear of other moms giving their same age kiddos these things. So I am wondering what your thoughts are on things like:
crunchy: chips, pretzels, raw apples/pears, wheat thins, etc.
small/round: grapes, plain m-n-m's, those yogurt covered raisins, etc.
I just worry about her choking.
What kinds of these things do you give your kids? and do they have all their teeth yet?
