Here are four forbidden foods you should avoid before your baby turns one. First, stay away from honey. Sure its sweet, but it's sticky and can be tough for babies to swallow. It also contains spores of a certain bacteria that is difficult to digest, making it toxic for babies. Second, be careful with nuts. Experts now recommend exposing babies to nuts around six months. As long as there isn't a history of allergies in the family. But never feed babies whole nuts or a spoonful of nut butter, which are not good for small windpipes. Third, don't serve cow's milk.
