I am very glad that our DD loves to eat fruits. Now that almost all of her teeth are already out; except for 4 second molars both upper and lower, she can eat almost anything. One morning I gave her apple. I was watching her closely as she eats because she has the tendency of shoving a lot in her mouth. Sometimes she will swallow it without chewing and she gets choke. She was enjoying biting the apple but I took it from her when she gagged.
