In brief: Depends

It would depend on the clinical symptoms or reaction which your child has/had.
For example, it can be useful in severe eczematous patients as studies range in a 30-50% rate of a food allergy which could potentially be triggering/contributing to your child's eczema. This should be discussed in detail with your child's allergy specialist.

In brief: I wouldn't

The important allergic triggers at this age can be defined through blood testing.

In brief: No

Morse likely skin testing at this young age will not be helpful at all.
We start allergy skin testif by the age of 2-3 years.
