Eggs and peanut allergies can kill. Giving eggs and peanuts to babies may stop these allergies. Researchers found that babies aged 4-to-6 months who ate eggs were 40% less likely to get an egg allergy. Babies aged four-to-11 months who ate food with peanuts were 70 per cent less likely to get a peanut allergy.

Egg and peanut allergies are the most common food allergies. Parents must be careful. Babies can choke on big nuts. Other food allergies are to soy, wheat and seafood. Giving these to babies may keep allergies away. Parents should check their baby after each new food. We need to find the best ages for babies to eat these foods.
