Q.

Naartjies

Good day Doc

My daughter who is now 16 months, absolutely loves Naartjies. She insists on having one each day. Is this ok - I am a bit worried about the acidity?

Best regards
Sam

Naartjies do contain citric acid, but your little daughter loves eating them. They are not causing her any harm, so she can continue to eat naartjies.
