I would have gave it back to him without a second thought to be honest .

I'd let him eat it... But obviously it depends what you're comfortable with.
My dauter's not of bribery age yet, but I'd be happy to let her eat something that had dropped almost anywhere. If it was particularly dirty/hairy etc. then I'd rinse it off (in my water bottle if necessary), and give it back. I'd draw the line at having dropped it somewhere with potentially dangerous bacteria (say...in a toilet, or on top of dog poo).

Nope no way. People's shoes have walked there and I don't even want to think about that.

So glad I saw this. DS dropped his rusk at the supermarket once and I gave it back to him and DH was HORRIFIED. But seriously, the kid has been known to lick shoes.

I would run it under water in the toilets maybe? Lol I do this for my ds food! Hahaha my poor child eating wet food!

If the portion of floor that it touched looked relatively clean I'd blow on it and back to her it'd go.

Well I told him it was up to him and he popped it back in his mouth. He gets a lollipop (and by lollipop I mean chubba chub) maybe every 6 months. I am a mean mummy when it comes to junk food - sweets are for parties only and even then only in limited amounts. He's never even had soft drink!
It's that dilemma of where do you draw the line between building their immune system and keeping things hygienic? I was out the shops another time and had DD in the shopping trolley seat. I was mortified when I found her bending over and sucking on the trolley handle across the front. They are supposed to be one of the germiest places

OP, out of curiosity, what did YOU do?
I guess there will come a point one day where they will "oh gross mum, I'm not having it back" LOL
ETA: snap! :-)
