How many bananas is too much for a two year old?
My child eats other meals well, but is always asking for bananas. he would eat 2 to 3 sometimes 4 bananas a day.

Answer: Hi There, That`s so great that your toddler loves a nice healthy food. As they say all things in moderation. Generally two pieces of fruit a day is enough for children. There`s not strictly a health issue just that variety is best, if you have ready any of my stuff you will know I bang on about this a great deal. Eating lots of different things helps to ensure a range of nutrients are gained each day. So again, there is no hard and fast rule but two a day would be fine plus another fruit somewhere in the mix. Cheery oh, Leanne
