The child needs to clean the tangerine properly

The season of tangerines, a favorite fruit of many children, is beginning. But many parents are worried about whether they will cause allergies, at what age should they treat their children to this sweet citrus, and how best to serve it?

Iryna Platonova, a pediatrician and pediatric neurologist, shared her thoughts on how to give tangerines to children on her Instagram blog.

According to her, this fruit can be introduced into a child's diet from the age of 6 months. Tangerines are not among the most common food allergens, so it should be quite safe. Although, of course, it is necessary to observe the baby's reaction.

The smaller the child, the higher the risk that he or she will choke on the peels on the tangerine slices. Therefore, before serving, the doctor recommends removing these films and offering the child clean pulp. Moreover, it is better to cut the slices into halves - the smaller the piece, the safer it is for the baby to consume.
