Can you share with me if it is ok to feed a 15mths egg (well blend of yolk and white then steam with fish or meat) or egg tofu (those bought from market) and Kiwi ?
I went home early that day and saw my mother in law giving that to dear son and thought I read somewhere that egg should wait a bit - allegic and Kiwi due to the acid (sour) in it, is no good for too young kid.
I want to get my fact right before telling her.
it's okay to let your son take both egg yolk and white. he is alrdy 15mth old, can take egg alrdy. usually egg yolk is suitable for 8mth old above while egg white is 1yo onwards.
as for kiwi, i started giving dear son long before he reach 1yo. and in fact after 1yo, there are many foods that a child can takes. =)
Egg yolk can b given at 8 months n egg white after a year old. kiwi is good too bursting with vitamins! my son loves kiwi n i think i given him at 7 months!
btw if its his first time for these 2 food then just watch out for allergies.
I give my son egg yolk before 1 yrs old and after 1, upon the nurses advice at the polyclinic, then I give him whole egg to prepare for the MMR vaccine
As for kiwi, I have never really intro to my son until recently they have the golden kiwi, he quite like it......
Thanks for all your sharing. At least I dont feel so bad now.
