Eggs - when can I give them?


My LO is just over 5 months but Im wondering when I can give her eggs....like scrambled eggs? The books I have say 1year but everyone tells me 6 months?? No history of an allergy in either of our families so can I give them at 6 months?

I do think so-we get told by HV's they can eat anything and everything like we do after six months. All except honey and whole nuts.

Yep, they can have anything after 6 months as long as there is no history of allergies (minus honey and choking hazards like nuts). Our LO hates scrambled eggs, strange texture I guess

They recently changed the guidelines in my area (about a year ago) and egg whites are now ok after 6 months

My pediatrician said from 8 months onwards as they need to get used to veg, fruit, cereals and pasta first. Then yogurt and if not allergic then egg.
