    • You can start nuts to the baby from 8 months. First, introduce each nut separately to your baby in powdered form or paste form (one at a time) in paste or powder form by adding to baby food to see if it suits her.
      The nuts powder can be given to babies after introducing each nut, and dry fruits separate. Once you introduced each nuts separate and ruled out allergies, try the nuts powder. 
      Start with 1/2 tsp of nuts powder and check whether the baby shows an allergic reaction, check it for three days, and if the baby is not allergic to it, you can increase the amount gradually. Check the nuts powder recipe here:
