  • As long as you don't have food allergies in your family and you cut them small enough that they aren't a choking hazard. If any blood relatives have food allergies, I would postpone all nuts until age 2.

  • I wouldn't but there is a history of nut allergies in my family. I am allergic to pecans. something to consider before you give you LO nuts. also, they might be a little hard to chew

  • Yes, as long as they aren't in a shape the baby can choke on.

    The current recommendation is that babies over 6 months can have pretty much anything including peanuts and tree nuts. They can't have cow or other mammal milk or honey.
