This is absolutely a myth which has been prevailing since ages. There is no harm
in giving bananas to your child. Bananas are rich in vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and
potassium. These vital vitamins and minerals boost a child's immune system. It
is a heavy food so it's advisable to not give it to a child in the late hours
because it gets difficult to digest. However, banana milkshake cannot be given
to a child suffering from cold or cough. In fact, no fruit should be given in
combination with milk or curd during cold or cough. The only case when you
should not give bananas is when you know your child is allergic to this fruit.
This is very rare though. Keen observation can help you find whether your child
is allergic to bananas or not. Parents tend to overlook that the child gets
exposed to dirt and dust so might get sick because of that and instead blame
bananas for sickness. So just be observant and be sure what exactly the cause of
your child’s sickness is.
