Q.

Biltong &  teething

Dear Doc

Are their any negatives associated with giving my 7 month old teething daughter a piece of biltong to chew on?

Regards

The main negative is the danger of choking.Also the high salt content of biltong and the other spices used when making biltong.

You actually do get biltong for babies for teething, low in salt and spices.
