Is it ok for a 10 month old to paint with Frozen watered down food colouring and put it in their mouths?

She only wants to eat paint and crayons at the moment! Tried it once but she kept trying to put it in her mouth. Should have checked b4 hand.

Ds is very allergic to artificial colours - so watch out for that!!

I would rather a child ate frozen food colouring than paint and crayons!! However agree with sarah707, watch out for allergies and hyperactivity with them. You could always ask the parent how they feel about it, and what they'd prefer!!
You can get natural food colours now such as red and yellow, maybe you could use these?
