im no baby expert, but when i googled "what to do if a maggot is in your apple" this was the link that popped up
anyway i was eatin away at my apple after a nice bowl, and on this one side it was like a little black circle in near the root of the apple, i bit into it and then there was all this little black dirt-like stuff, i started staring at it and a little head pops out. i immediately ran to the bathroom and threw up

Just experienced the same thing... a dark hole was present on the apple skin, dug into the apple to find a tiny brown tunnel, which led to the extremely small 'worm' in my apple. It hadn't made its way to the core yet, but was heading right for it.
The 'worm' was yellowish-white with a black/brown head. If anyone is wondering, it is actually a larvae of the codling moth; they are usually found in western and southern North America (especially Utah) and are NOT parasitic to humans... but, they are common in apples we eat, so we have all probably eaten a few in our lifetime. I saw an article online saying "Bad News For Vegetarians", and thought that was funny; we just can't get away from ingesting that kind of protein.
The apple I had was from Washington. The little critter made its way past the border into BC.
