I have been a scared peds nurse when it comes to giving Braden popcorn. I think "they" say you can give it at age 2, but I know lots of friends and family have given their toddlers popcorn before then and they've all survived. I was just worried about aspiration I guess! But, with close supervision, on a chilly evening last week, I made Braden his first popcorn while we sat down and watched Cars as a family.
He really liked it! He loves the opening 20 minutes or so of Cars and then he's off and on playing and paying attention for the rest of the movie.
And after the movie Daddy was playing Xbox, Braden found his controller (an old one that doesn't work) and plopped himself right by Jay...it was so darling!
So I guess I was worried for no reason, and now Braden can enjoy popcorn as a treat sometimes!
