Don’t let their puppy-dog eyes convince you grapes are a snack that should be shared. You can cave when it comes to blueberries, though.

Bananas are low in cholesterol and calories and contain several nutrients. When it comes to snacking, offer your pup smaller, easily digestible pieces and keep the banana peel out of paw’s reach.
(Even though bananas are generally safe for dogs, always consult your vet before introducing a new food to their diet.)
Not all “safe” foods are good for your dog to eat as is — make sure each bite is appropriately prepared (pay attention to cooking instructions, seasonings and ingredients) before treating your pup.
If at any point your dog negatively reacts to something they’ve eaten, call your vet or poison control immediately.
Don’t rely on these foods to improve your dog’s health without your vet’s guidance.
