6 months: There's no convincing evidence that delaying any food beyond 4 to 6 months reduces the odds of allergies.

Small amounts are started then increased as the child is able to tolerate more volume. ...Read more

When can I feed my baby fish?

10-12 months: If a parent wants to feed a baby fish, wait until the baby is old enough to be able to eat pureed meats, which are a bit drier/stickier than the baby-food veggies or fruits.
