There's nothing you can't give here, all of those are fine.

There is nothing really that you can't give a 1 year old

Yes all fine! You can't give whole peanuts or some very bizarre things like honey (due to a nasty type of bacterium); or deep sea fish like shark, swordfish (too much Mercury) - but who does??!!
All foods can cause allergies to some people (there will be someone out there who has reacted to every single edible substance) but that's not to say you need to avoid particular things. Evidence is accumulating that introduction of allergenic foods from the point of weaning is associated with fewer reactions to that food, anyway.

Feed her whatever you are eating, other than whole nuts at this age. Honey is only off the cards until 1, so even that is fine. Just avoid added salt.

Honey is fine at age 1, only needs to be avoided under 1 due to the small chance of infant botulism

I guess adding in fish, meat, eggs to the balance as you said already lots of fruit, veg grains and dairy?? As that will add good fats, protein, iron and lots of other vits and minerals. Unless baby is already having these!
