For children aged 0-6 months
Need to avoid all! The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding only for the first six months. But depending on your specific conditions, you can ask your doctor if you should start giving your baby more solid foods before six months of age.
For children from 6-12 months old
- Wheat or products made with wheat: because this is the most common food allergen. You can use rice and flour when your baby is 6-8 months old.
- Honey: because it contains spores of Clostridium poisoning (a form of severe food poisoning that contains Clostridium botulinum). These spores can grow, producing unique “biochemical and life-threatening” toxins.
- Milk Full Cream: Young children can be allergic to cow’s milk. During the first six months of age, breast-feeding or formula-feeding should be given only.
- Egg whites: rich in protein, but should only be fed to children when they are one year old. For 9-month-old babies, they eat egg yolks very well.
- Peanut butter and peanuts: can stimulate strong allergies, not for children aged 3 years old.
For children aged 2-3 years
- Low-fat milk: Only start drinking low-fat milk when you are 2 years old. Younger children need the fat in Whole Milk.
- Peanuts: peanuts can easily make children choke. To be safe, only feed them when they are 3 years old.
- Burgers: toddlers are prone to choking when eating even very small pieces of burgers. If giving the child, cut the cake into long, thin pieces
- Whole grapes: easy to get stuck in a child’s throat, so need to cut into pieces before feeding.
- Carrots: should be cut into very small pieces or cooked to avoid choking.
- Butter, cheese: break into small pieces and regularly watch the baby’s eating process.
- Hard candies, corns: risk of choking. If not cut into small pieces, it is believed that the baby should not be fed.
