When Can Kids Eat Shellfish?
Most doctors recommend that you wait until your baby is 9 months old to give him fish (such as salmon) and 12 months for shellfish (such as shrimp or lobster). This is because by this point his immune system should be developed enough to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. Many doctors, however, feel that in certain cases you should wait until your child is three years old. These cases include if there is a family history of severe allergies, the baby has food allergies, or has asthma, eczema or seasonal allergies. In all cases, you should wait to introduce shellfish to your child until after he is eating fruits, vegetables, meat and poultry. junior bridesmaid wears specially for kids
