    Question Chocolate?

    My DD is going to a friends BD party this week and the cake is going to be chocolate. I though chocolate was a No No until after 2 (I could be wrong) if someone knows that would be great. I wasn't planing on giving my DD chocolate for a while (shes 12 months TODAY!! ) Anyone know if Chocolate is bad?? Is it okay for a one time thing.. or is it an allergy worry and should be held off?

    I think it's a taste thing. If they don't get a food before 2 then they don't develop a taste for it. I could be wrong but that's what one dr told me.

    There is probably numerous reasons: Chocolate has caffeine doesn't it? And Chocolate is a bean....perhaps there could be allergies similar to soy?

    I think chocolate is a potential allergen but it should be avoided until 1 year and after that it should be OK. Maybe you can give just a little to see if it will cause any reactions first.
    Happy birthday!

    Thanks for all the info and BD wishes, I'm still on the fence, maybe a small taste (from mommy's ) but no more then that.

    Thanks
