    Question whats allowed after 12 months and textures??

    I hear so much about waiting for certian foods depending on age for allergies. I know alot of them are allowed after the 12 month mark. We have just reached that so now what is allowed? I know Peanuts are usually a no no until after 2 if not 3 so I'll probably wait on those, but what about Egg. I know Egg whites were not allowed before one... are they allowed after? and what about honey? and citrus?


    Also any tips on texture issues.. other then keep offering... I keep offering and I keep getting the sour face or the gag face. She will eat cheerios, freezer dried fruits, and toast but wont touch fresh fruits (too slimy) any meats (to stringy I guess) or any fresh veggies or most pasta. I really want to share my meals with her, and would rather not puree everything.

    Thanks!

    Here are my favorite resources about when to introduce foods:

    As for texture - I'd just keep trying and be patient and not let your LO pick up on any stress you may have.
