    Apricots can be quite soft. I'd chop them up a lot before offering - make the bits as small as the sultanas. Other dried fruit includes dried apple & paw paw. Is there a reason you want dried fruit? Dried fruit can be quite high in sulphites & other preservatives which can upset the stomachs of some people. Fresh fruit is always better if possible.

    Sultanas (and grapes) can cause diarrhoea when consumed in large amounts. My ds would get diarrhoea if he ate more than 8 grapes in a day, or more than half a packet of sultanas, but he has a pretty sensitive gut.

    my DD loves cherries. I cut them off the pip so, basically they are the size of a grape cut in half.
    she also loves sultanas and grapes.
    oranges, mandarins & watermelon are the other big winners in our house

    Always try buy organic dried fruit as a pp said the commercial varieties are full of chemicals plus the sugar content is ridiculous!
