Hi Yessy,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Babies who are more than 12 months old are actually relatively safe to consume foods that can be consumed by adults, including ice cream. However, there are several conditions where you need to be more vigilant before giving ice cream to babies, including:

Infants who have symptoms of allergies, malabsorption, or intolerance after consuming components in ice cream, for example milk, artificial sweeteners, food coloring, and so on
Babies who have hypersensitivity to cold

Babies who have a cold, cough with phlegm

If your baby does not have one or more of the above conditions, then consumption of ice cream is not prohibited. Still, you shouldn't overfeed your baby with ice cream. It is feared that the high calorie content in ice cream has the risk of making your baby suffer from obesity, diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Also avoid giving untreated ice cream to children hygienically to keep them from getting gastrointestinal infections. It will be much safer if you make the ice cream yourself than buying it instantly. Do not forget to always monitor your baby when consuming ice cream so that no harmful substances are ingested either on purpose or accidentally, for example the stick or the wrapper.


That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a pediatrician or a nutritionist.


I hope this helps.
