Foods to use with caution (for baby & toddler)

Foods to use with caution

  • Avoid foods that cause any of the reactions above or any known family allergens.
  • Flours (especially wheat) are best avoided for the first two years. Rice flour can be used as an alternative. Avoid Buckwheat.
  • Raw onions and garlic are not for regular use.
  • No salt under 10 months, then use with caution (avoid gravies and commercial products that contain salt).
  • Avoid refined and rancid cooking oils as well as margarine and canola oil.
  • Avoid too much raw food.
  • Refined sweeteners like fructose and white sugar.
  • Chocolate and caffeine containing products.
  • Honey (especially raw) under 18 months of age (can contain the toxin botulin).• Too much fruit especially raw and in cold weather.
  • Avoid fruit juice until at least 18 months of age and then only as an occasional (once a week/fortnight) drink made fresh from fresh fruits.
  • Limit strong spices and condiments.
  • Avoid overuse of dairy products. Goat's dairy is the best for after breast milk for toddlers. Rice milk can be used as a drink and in cooking. Cow's milk is overused in our society and should be used sparingly. Occasional cheese and yoghurt is fine for children over 18 months.
  • Avoid shellfish.
  • Avoid peanuts and other nuts in the first 2-3 years, longer if there is a family history of allergies.

Refined Oils

Refined Oils are extracted from clean oilseed / oil cakes by solvent extraction for further refining to produce clear oil, free from rancidity and foreign matter. These oils are used as medium cooking oils (225°F - 350°F), high cooking oils (350°F - 450°F), and deep-frying oils (greater than 450°F).

Rancid Oil

Rancid oil has an unpleasant aroma and acrid taste, and its nutrients are greatly diminished.
