  • Give the yolk scrambled..not the whites. The white part is what is more allergenic.
    You can try it. I gave egg yolks to my daughter before she was one year. I scrambled them and put some cheese on top. She still doesnt care too much for eggs though, LOL.Shes a picky one :)

  • Egg white is an allergy trigger food, and should not be given to a child under age 1.

  • yes, you can try it, but give the yolks, not the egg whites. The whites is the allergenic part of it. yolks are perfectly ok for you them to have younger than 1 yr. I started my son on scrambled eggs (yolk and whites) just before 1 year and he did fine.

  • If you are going to try them, I would try a little bit at a time, and watch for a reaction before letting them 'dig in' to the eggs.

  • I wouldn't be eating any eggs right now, not since they had that recall just recently :) I would be more worried about salmonella not allergies :-p

  • if you give them eggs have the air freshener in reaching range for the dirty diaper and gas.

  • The American Academy of Pediadtrics says they can have eggs after 6 months as long as there is no allergy in the family, whites and all :)
