In brief: Wait until talking

Nuts are not necessary for a balanced infant nutrition but do have valuable nutrients.
I have had parents offer nuts, popcorn & similar fare as snacks, only to have the infant suck pieces into the lung. Days may go by before a terrible pneumonia starts & baby couldn't get better until the nut piece was removed in the or.Wait until they can talk well so they can tell you if they inhaled the snack.

In brief: 3 years

Whole nuts are not suggested until age three because of choking hazard.
Peanut butter is currently not recommended until after age 2 because of allergic tendency. Tree nut butters like almond and cashew can be introduced after age one. Obviously watch for reactions.
