I am worried that my baby will choke so I always throw it away when it gets small. Do you let your baby eat the while thing, and without any problems? Do you allow your baby to munch on a ruisk until it’s finished?

  • My daughter usually only eats 3/4 and then puts it down so I have not had ro intervene yet.

  • All foods can form a choking hazard by little kids. I preferred to give mine a piece of toast above rusks

  • mine never did – they just sucked a little, then it got boring, and they threw it aside LOL

  • Never last that far with mine either, she always throw it down half way. So never had to worry about it.

  • I think I would do the same but as he either rubs it into something or drops it then I never have to worry ;)

  • No, I always panic on choking and one of mine was a guts and stuffed all sorts of food into his mouth, so I always took them away at about a third left, I actually found my kids liked YOYO biscuits better and they were not the choking hazard that I find rusks to be as they are so hard.

  • My baby has only been able to eat about half of a rusk at a time because she either gets bored and throws it on the ground or she swaps it for her dummy or her ‘Sophie the Giraffe’ teething toy.

  • Wonderful advice as usual and I agree.

  • The rusk never made it that far before being thrown on the ground and then having to be put in the bin.

  • I take it away once it’s too soggy because it’s so messy!

  • i never did as I was too paranoid about her choking

  • my kids are past rusks now but they never got more then half way before its was dropped on the ground or became yuk

  • Also; as with all food kids are supervised with rusks.

  • I let my baby chew on it untill she gets bored from it. (Never gets half way through it).
    I give her arnotts kruskits which she sucks on and softens in her mouth

  • Only half as they look a little ‘nasty’ after a while and also the possible choking hazard.
