I don't think raisins are considered a choking risk; they aren't like grapes that, swallowed whole for example, could block an airway really... I'd worry more about getting it out of teeth later Elyse has had them since around 12 months though
Bethlouise has been eating raisins since she was six months old, same with whole grapes too. I wasn't aware that these were a problem until someone else freaked out when I gave her a whole grape in front of them
Oh, and my mom said that the boxes of dried apricots and raisins that are aimed at babies say "12 months+" - so you shouldn't worry really.
