I understand blueberries are not nightshade but they contain solanine? How much do they contain? I let my toddler eat them everyday thinking it is good for her brain development... Is there a way to neutralize the solanine levels in blueberries? Do all blueberries contain solanine? What about wild blueberries?

I seriously doubt that there is enough Solanine in blueberries to hurt a toddler... unless he has a proven sensitivity to solanine.
When I was young, I ate tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, okra, blueberries, artichokes and other foods laced with solanine... with no problems. However, in my fifties, I suspect my liver did not filter as well and I developed solanine inflammation issues associated with both bone spurs and arthritis.
