I read that children under 1year can not eat any dairy products because they might be more liable to allergy or asthma. Is it true?

In brief: No

Most infant formula products are derived from milk, but the protein is broken down to help digestion.
It would be best to use them until age 1.

The new guideline recommends that infants be fed table foods between ages 4 and 6 months. Delayed introduction of regular foods may actually increase the risk of developing food allergies.

In brief: False

Not true in general .
All formulas are diary products . Nothing to do with asthma.

In brief: Not true...

Data suggests that early introduction of foods before a year of age but after 4 months is not a risk factor for developing food allergies.
This is true for dairy, peanut, eggs and other foods. If however your child has eczema, they may already be allergic or sensitive to the food and should be tested before the food is introduced.
