    If there is no other signs of Food allergies, after the year point. If you have experienced ANY other signs of food allergies, since nuts are very high on the list, I believe you are supposed to wait until the 3year point. At least that is what an allergist will caution you to do.

    I think the actual recommendation is 2 years for any nuts. I don't know anyone that actually waits that long though, unless they are afraid of food allergies.

    I waited until 2 yrs for DD1, but DD2 got a hold of DD1's peanut butter just recently at around 17 months. Thankfully, both are not allergic. With DD1, though, I introduced it to her in the waiting room of ped's office on 2 year well check - JIC

    Nuts are a choking hazard. They say pb or other nut butters are fine now as long as there are no allergies but the whole nuts are a choking hazard.

    The AAP changed their stance on it earlier this year. They now say that it does not matter when you introduce high allergy foods. http://foodallergies.about.com/od/ad...elaysolids.htm

    Of course, I don't think nuts and toddlers mix, but that is my own personal fear.
