    DD loves her fruit too, but I do try to get her eating other things too. For example, I'll put some blueberries on top of yoghurt (she calls it yoghurt with dots) so she's getting come calcium and protein as well as a fruit hit. I also often do a little plate with crackers and cheese with the fruit.

    DD does 1-3 soft bowel movements per day and sometimes I worry she's eating too much fruit, but I'm told it's fairly normal for her age.

    There's ppl that only eat fruit as in that's their whole diet?

    Fruit plus water plus a toothbrush - and you shouldn't have issues with teeth!


    My kids adore fruit, I only limit them when we are broke

    They still eat plenty of the other things that make up a balanced diet.

    I don't believe there is ever an issue of TOO much fruit. As long as they are also eating a varied diet and include veggies, nuts, seeds, grains etc in other meals throughout the day .

    I buy a certain amount of fruit per week and once it's gone that's it until next week. I won't keep buying more.
