At what age should I include gluten in my baby's diet?

Gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats, should be introduced to your baby’s diet at about 6 months of age. The Department of Health advises against introducing gluten too early (before 4 months) or too late (after 7 months) to reduce the risk of coeliac disease.
Very small amounts of gluten should be introduced at first, such as a gluten-containing baby cereal. You can then gradually increase the amount of gluten in your baby’s diet over the next 4-6 weeks.
