hello

Customer:

I'm not sure what your concern is. Are you worried the oysters would harm them some how?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

My question is based in what we hear about oyster shells is aphrodisiac.


So, I am confused if is okay to give it to a child with 5 to eat or they are too young to eat this kind food.

Expert:  KansasTherapist replied 4 years ago.
The idea of oysters being an aphrodisiac is a myth. It won't cause a child to be sexually aroused.

Good afternoon, I just want to add a small word of caution. Please be sure that you nor your child eat raw oysters, as they have been found by the FDA to cause illness or even death. Make sure they are thoroughly cooked. Here's two articles that provide more in depth insight:
