Infant diet at 6 mos: The general recommendation for food introduction in infants is rice cereal at 4 months, vegetables at 5 months, fruits and fruit juices at 6 months. Peas and green beans should be safe for children with G6PD deficiency, but fava beans are not. Check the following website for a more comprehensive list and more G6PD information http://g6pddeficiency.org/
