What not to do

Do not introduce before one year:

  • Liver pate - due to high vitamin A content
  • Soft cheeses such as brie - risk of food poisoning
  • Honey - risk of food poisoning (botulism)
  • Full-fat milk as a drink since it doesn't contain the right balance of nutrients to meet your baby's needs, but it can be used in cooking to make sauces and puddings.

Do not introduce before two years:

  • Semi-skimmed milk - you can introduce it from two years old onwards if your child is a good eater and has a varied diet.

Do not introduce before three years:

  • All nuts (including peanuts) should be avoided for the first three years.

Do not introduce before five years:

  • Skimmed milk
  • Tea and coffee since they reduce iron absorption and if they have added sugar, can cause tooth decay.
  • Nuts and seeds - whole nuts are not advised before 5 years due to risk of choking.
