Q.

Starter foods for allergy baby

Hi Prof

I have what you would call an ''allergy baby''. He''s allergic to cow''s milk and has eczema. What starter foods would you suggest?

I have always thought that rice cereal was the best option, but have been reading that some paeds recommend banana and sweet potato. What is your suggestion?

Thanks.

You must definitely start with a rice cereal. You can give your baby butternut or pumpkin or sweet potato as the first vegetables and apple and pear as the first fruits
