  • There is a huge list, but honey and nuts are the first that come to mind (including peanut butter, because of the nuts and the consistency of the product).

  • Strawberries and chocolate are big ones(very common to be allergic to) if there are food allergies already in your family then I would avoid those foods also until they are a little older

  • I was told honey and peanut butter (obviously any chokeables) and probably anything peanut (in case of allergies..)

  • Honey of course because it can cause botulism in infants under 1 year of age.
    Peanut butter
    Tree nuts (pose choking hazard)
    Citrus or Acidic Fruits ( not an allergen but may cause rash and digestive upset due to acidity. Using dash of lemon or pineapple juice in whole fruit puree is not the same as giving pureed or sliced oranges, pineapples ect.)
    Egg whites (many peds will say it is fine for an older infant to have baked goods include whole eggs)
    Whole Milk ( Lactose and milk proteins may cause allergic reactions and may also cause tummy troubles as they are hard to digest- yogurt and cheese are exceptions. Millk also hinders proper absorptions of iron; iron is crucial during the 1st year.
    Wheat ( many suggest that for the infant who has had no issues with gluten in Oats and or barley, and who has no history of what allergy ot gluten intolerance, that offering what products such as whole wheat toast is fine around
