My daughter gets pretty hyper when she eats dark chocolate so I only let her eat a little and never before bedtime. Not exactly what you were asking, just our experience.


Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Chocolate has caffeine & usually also sugar - so no, not a huge nutritional boost. But, it's not cyanide either. I think my kids 1st had chocolate when they were toddlers, as a treat (maybe around X-mas or Chinese New Year).
