Prob low risk: Mold will not cause food poisoning in an otherwise healthy baby, but spoiled foods do pose a risk for bacterial food poisoning. If the baby appears ill, has blood in stool, a fever, or intractable vomiting, see the pediatrician. Without those symptoms, observation is adequate. Importantly, check food for spoilage before serving- don't give "iffy" foods!
