when is the right time in day to give pumpkin seeds,pistachio,almonds,raisins or cashewnuts for a preschooler?Some say late evening is not right coz nuts and seeds are heavy and ther wont be easy digestion.
Pls comment.I dono what is true.

Well, first of all, I woulnd't give any nuts to a pre-school child unless under strict, close supervision: and certainly only one variety at a time, so that if they do have a reaction, you know exactly what it is Many children have nut allergies, which, put bluntly, can kill.
And I've never heard of needing a particular time of day to eat these foods - and raisins are a fruit, not a nut or a seed.

my 2 year old LOVES nuts. he will eat anything with nuts! he calls peanut butter & honey toast...pooh bear bread (because of the honey).
i NEVER leave him alone with nuts though, as i'm always afraid he'll choke on one. never had a problem though.
as a matter of fact, nuts are quite high in protein, which is good because my son is not very fond of meat. (will occasionally eat chicken or pork, hates beef)
