The last I had read from the AAP, they didn't recommend nuts to children under 3 out of concern for allergies.
I believe I have also read about a later British study that suggested that the longer nuts were DELAYED, the more likely allergies were.
There is no history of nut allergies in my family. I think we tried hazelnuts close to 1 year, and most other tree nuts not long after. We held off on peanuts until more like 15 months or so, when he finally *insisted* he had to have a bite of my PB toast breakfast, and NO, the jelly toast would not do. He's 2 now, and no problems with any kinds of nuts.
If there'd been a history, I would surely have held off longer.
