ds is 14 months old and is allergic to cows milk and egg. we are therefore using vegan recipes for most of the cooking but alot of these used nuts. i know nuts are good for certain nutrients but i dont know when and how i should try DS with them. i know you should avoid peanuts till 3 but i dont know about other nuts and the doctors here are useless.

has anyone any experience of this or could offer any advice?

I would personally avoid all nuts until at least 3 in any child or in the case of an allergic child, 5.

My son has anaphylactic reactions to milk and eggs, and my paediatrician says I should keep him away from nuts until at least 8 years old, and have RAST tests first.
