Yogurt and eggs for babies

Dear Prof
What is an appropriate age to introduce eggs and yogurt to my babies'  diet? They are happily eating veggies, fruit and cereal at 6 months of age without any reaction to anything so far.
Thank you!

Thanks. Start yoghurt at 8 months and eggs at 12 months.

My grandson is 8 months and already eat scrambled eggs from about 6 months. He recently start to eat Yogurt with no reaction so far. He is also eating veggies and fruit daily as well as cooked beef and chicken also with no reaction.
If they do not have any reaction to other milk products, I think it is save to give eggs and yogurt!

Good luck and God Bless!
