When is it typical to introduce seafood such as shrimp and crab meat?

My kids are 3 and almost 2. I haven't given them "seafood" for fear of an allergic reaction. When is it typical to introduce shellfish and seafood?

  • I'm waiting until age 3, but I recently developed an allergy or sensitivity for shrimp even though I ate it most of my life with no problems.

  • You could have them tested for shellfish allergies or just risk it. They're old enough to try some. Do you have a shellfish allergy that runs in the family?
