When is it okay to give a baby almond milk?

When is it okay to give a baby almond milk?

Wait until 2 because: Almond milk is a wonderful food but i'd be cautious about introducing it too soon because the foods people become allergic to most often are dairy, wheat, eggs, soy, corn & almonds (in about that order). The sooner you introduce it the more likely it will be a problem. Might be ok starting at age 1 if limit to 1-2x/week, but no real research on this.
