    I'm pretty sure that it's after one year, however alot of people do it sooner I think on eggs they can have the yolks before one but not the whites? I would be extra careful if any of those allergies run in the family. I plan on waiting for awhile, as they do run in mine.

    thanks for those charts! we have already done some no-no's.... he has already had peas and blueberries, but with no reaction, so i guess it was ok. i didn't realize i could do yogurt and cheese now, though. any suggestions on what type of yogurt? i would think plain, right? what types of cheeses are best for introduction?

    We did plain whole organic milk yogurt.

    If you do a yogurt that has fruit mixed in - I'd recommend doing a fruit your LO has already eaten and been ok with.

    Some of the yogurts have an astonishing amount of sugar - so may want to read the labels.

    thanks, again! i think i'll stick with trying just plain whole milk organic yogurt. i don't think he needs stuff mixed in anyway.

    We used this too, but sometimes added a fruit puree (one without any added sugar) for extra flavor. I think that's better than buying the pre-flavored varieties.
    Both of my LOs love yogurt! Sometimes we mix in extra probiotic powder if they have upset tummies.

    And I'm a big fan of Organic string cheese.

    Way too lazy for formula

    The only cheese Mady will eat is shredded mozzarella. She'll eat some american and marble, but not much. She hates cheddar with a passion!
