What do you look for on labels to know that a food isn't safe for a peanut allergic child? I'm so scared to introduce new foods to my 11 month old son. I've done some like bananas and carrots but nothing beyond that. Thank you!

If that's all you've introduced you have plenty of room to play before you even worry about labeling. While you are learning try fresh fruits and vegetables like avacado, apples, cooked broccoli, sw potato, white potato, cauliflower. Most trust General Mills (Cheerios) and Quaker(plain oatmeal), lenders bagels are specifically labeled as safe. Plain chicken (boiled or baked) or small pieces of hamburger are great.
