My step-mum told me today (who heard this at work) that if you eat fruit after a meal it will take longer to digest therefore will FERMENT in your belly as it is lying on top of your recently eaten meal! Melon especially! She said it is suggested to leave an hour or 2 before you eat the fruit as a dessert! Can i have peoples views and/or opinions on this please as i quite regularly give my 14 month old fruit as her dessert with no gap in between and am now feeling a bit weird about it!!
P.s I did a little looking it up on the net but got mixed thoughts from it all!
