You're welcome. Don't forget to go slow when adding new foods.

If I remember correctly, shouldn't fruits with skins (apples, peaches, blueberries, etc.) be peeled before serving? I seem to remember Norman's Mom cautioning that mice can choke on the skins.

I'm not an expert, but I do believe you're right:)

Yes, it's in the "avoid" section. Too easy to miss?

Ah, yeah, probably could do with putting it in parenthesis at the beginning of the "safe" spot—like, SAFE (be sure to peel any fruits with skins) or something. I'm sure there's a better way of putting that though XD

Laughing When I compiled the list I never dreamed it would become a sticky. I was more double checking my personal list with the experts. Made sense to me at the time. Laughing

The problem with celery is that the strings are a choking hazard, so if they ate it and didn't choke they should be good. Razz

I offer crackers as treats, but only small pieces.
