Is raw cacao powder good for toddlers?

Well it is a stimulant and tends to send my little one off her rocker, so I would advise to proceed with caution

It's got a fairly bitter taste so she may not like it. If you do use it, perhaps try it first so you don't turn her off her smoothies.

My fussy eater will not touch a smoothie or flavoured milk. Let me know if you want some high-calorie foods that have worked wonders for him. He is now above average weight!!!

I use it in bliss balls with ground nuts and medjool dates. My daughter loves them and has eaten them since she was 2. I didn't consider the caffeine though...

It contains caffeine. I still think it's a better option than processed cocoa however I would be cautious about giving it to a toddler unless a very special treat. That said, if you added a couple of table spoons to a batch of bliss balls the amount of cacao in one ball would be very minimal.
An alternative (if the caffeine concerns you) is carob powder 😊

I was thinking of putting just half a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon to a big batch of smoothie that both my kids will drink.
