Few to avoid. If you are at that point, i like to avoid egg white and chocolate until after a yr& most raw nut products until they can talk ( can inhale these into the lungs). Avoid pithy foods like raw celery, carrot or apple until after they have grinding teeth.

I generally wait for around 12 mo for other solids and 3 yrs for nut product/shellfish depending on family allergy history.
