Usually sweetened fruits are well tolerated by children. Banana and apple are very good fruits for babies. Moreover seasonal fruits like mango, jack fruit, papaya etc can be given in optimum amount. To the best of my knowledge grapes is not a good fruit for babies. It is better to avoid grapes for the first two years of life. Sour fruits can be given slowly thereafter.
