I was told strawberries are ok, but to only give a small amount to start as it can cause an allergic reaction.

sam was about 8/9 months, and helped herself to them stalks and all!

It wasnt the recommendation at the time (2 and a half years aago) but it was one of Sophia's very first tastes, the first piece of food she had out when i went out for a coffe. So at about five and a half months and it went in whole (as in the whole piece of strawberry, obv not a whole strawb!) She loved it. She did get a litlle red blotchiness but that was it and she was fine with them after that. Still her favourite fruit of all time

Thanks everyone. After the advice given I put the outside of the strawberry off and gazve it Nathan and he loved it! I also mashed one slightly and put it in a feeder so he can just suck the juice out of them and he loved that too... No rashes or anything so all is well! Smile

Many thanks x
