    Default Mini Bananas vs Regular Bananas

    Hello all. I have a question regarding mini bananas. I gave my almost 7 month old regular size bananas and she did fine with them so I bought some of the cute mini bananas at the store and after she ate them she got blotches on her chin. Does anyone know if their are any differences between the two. And anyone experience anything like this? And how much cereal should my almost 7 month old be eating? She eats in the am and the pm no lunch. I don't want to reduce milk just yet. You all understand I am sure.

    Those mini bananas are called plantains and they cannot be eaten raw. You have to cook them. They are usually used to make plantain or banana fritters and plantain chips. THis might be why your lo broke out.

    I know in Hawaii the mini bananas are called apple bananas. The only difference is taste; they taste sweeter and a bit like an apple (hence the name).

    Plantains are actually much bigger than regular bananas.
