    Default Are nectarines okay?

    My husband was eating a nectarine the other day and DD grabbed a piece and put it to her mouth. DH was surprised to discover she had eaten a very small bite out of it before he took it away. Is nectarine okay to give her? I've heard of peaches, but hadn't heard anyone mention nectarines.

    Thanks!

    Nectarines are wonderful. Looks like you've got a little one ready to mooch!
    The only thing I'd be careful about is washing it really well and removing the skin first (because of pesticide use ... I read on Consumer Reports that nectarines are reported to have a higher rate of them for some reason). It stated: "Among fruits, nectarines had the highest percentage testing positive for pesticide residue."

    That's actually a great little page for info on what is most important to buy organic:
