Introduction to solid food before age 4 months and at age 6 months or older was associated with a substantially increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes, compared with introduction at 4 months to 5 months, according to a study in JAMA Pediatrics. Researchers looked at 1,835 at-risk children and found that those who ate fruits at an early age and those with late exposure to rice and oats also had a higher risk of developing type 1 diabetes.
