a banana a day

The little man loves to eat banana. I used to share a banana with him, just giving him half of mine but that was before he almost choked on it. You see, he loves it so much that in the hopes of being given more he shoved the piece he was holding in his hands. It scared the living day lights out of me. For one, I don't know how to administer first aid for choking. And two, I panic right away when he gets into incidents like that which makes the husband worry about me and his son's safety.

So to save myself worry, I now cut the banana in small sizes then put the slices in a plate before giving it to him. He seems to like that there is more fruit left in his plate so he eats it in moderation. Of course I still keep an eye on him just for safety's sake. You have to be alert when dealing with a toddler. You just don't know what he might do.
