Jayapataka Swami: Any way, up to the age of five, the parents have to accept all the karmas of the child. So that is why the parents should see that the kids don’t kill bugs and stuff. Don’t do violent things, don’t eat unmentionable things. So if the parent finishes the prasadam, then there is no difference. But we can also serve what the child can eat. What is the use of giving a huge quantity, if the child doesn’t finish it. Give small portions and more as much as they can eat.
