I let my dd have a tiny bit of vanilla cake on her 1st birthday, but only a small piece small enough to fit in her hand. She squashed it then rubbed it through her hair and shoved what was on her fingers into her mouth. It was the only junk food she was allowed, but I also had fruit on offer so she had that mostly. Her party was not at a meal time, she still had her regular meals at home.
Just reading the other thread about an 11 month old got me thinking. The only reason mine even got cake at all is because it was her own birthday. Anyone else's birthday she would have been distracted with play or boob at cake time at 1.
Do you think junk food in moderation applies to infants, or only older toddlers/kids?
