When Can I Introduce Allergenic Foods to my Baby?

When can I introduce allergenic foods to my baby?

One of the most common questions I get from parents starting solids is “When can I introduce allergens like eggs/peanuts/dairy/wheat to my baby?

Even for high risk babies, the recommendations are now to introduce high risk allergenic foods fairly soon after starting solids, around 6 months of age. You can read the Canadian Pediatric Society statement on that here.

I created a video to share more details about introducing allergens to babies. Watch it here:
