Kosher Baby

You are here:
< Back

Dear Rabbi Simon,
I gave my one-year-old baby some food that was cooked with meat, and then 10 minutes later I gave him a dairy bottle without giving him anything to eat in between. Was this a problem? (If it’s not too much trouble, could you give me the Halachic sources in the answer? I like to look the sources up myself)
Thank you
Alan

Dear Alan
TY for your Q.
No problem WRT an infant. See Emet Le-Yaakov (R Yaakov Kaminetzky) YD 89:36. Some are lenient even until age 9, after waiting an hour max.
Best Wishes
Rabbi Rashi Simon

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Tzippy

Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
