How early can I introduce fish to my child?

You can introduce cooked fish to your child between 10 months and a year of age.

Early exposure to a variety of cooked fish will help your child develop a taste and preference for it.

Hold off on raw fish, such as sushi, until your child is 5-6 years of age when his or her immune system is fully developed. If you have a family history of food allergies to fish or other foods, consult with your pediatrician or allergist before introducing fish to outline an optimal plan for your child.
