Can or should: A controversy remains on introduction of allergy prone foods before a year of age. More research is needed to know the impact on the potential to trigger or avoid food allergy. It can be said that infants do not have the refined taste buds/memory to appreciate foods adults or older kids find pleasurable. There may/not be any risk so you are on your own.

Early introduction: We usually recommend introducing table food (especially peanuts) to an infant at or around 6 months of age to reduce the risk of developing food allergies. Although some studies have shown that early introduction of certain. foods might not reduce the risk of subsequent allergic reaction, there is no studies showing that any harm is done by early introduction.
