Is is safe to feed a PA child peas? I have heard that it could cause a reaction. I am working so hard to get some veggies in my daughter and this one we have not tried yet.

Also, at what age is it safe to feed a child corn? I know it can be an allergenic food too.

Thanks for all the help.

Both my PA kids favorite veggie was/is peas. It's all I could get my now 7 year old PA son to eat for the first two years of his life. Peas and corn and bread. He was very, very picky (keep in mind, he is now 7, 4'8" tall and 95lbs, so I don't think it really effected him much ~ and now he eats a lot more variety of food but still hates pizza!)
If you are dealing with multiple food allergy problems, I would suggest asking the allergist for their opinion on the matter.

my PA son has peas on his list of food to avoid, but they were only added *after* he had a reaction to chickpeas. The allergist told us to avoid ALL legumes, including soy, although *may contains* are fine for us.
My son was happy, he hates peas. Again, the allergist told us it's a warning sign in a kid known to have food allergies. So no peas here.
Corn hasn't been a problem though

My 2 y/o dd had anaphylaxis at 6 months old and was diagnosed with milk, egg, wheat and peanut allergy w/skin test. After introducing more foods to her, we've found a total of 18 things she's allergic to w/new skin test. BUT she is okay with soy, sugar snap peas and corn. I think you should consult w/your allergist as to when and how you can introduce these foods. Don't assume just b/c others may react to more than one legume that your child will to--but I totally understand your concern w/possible reactions! Best of luck. Jen
