No eggs, dairy or nuts can be quite hard, but there are many foods you can substitute with. My youngest is dairy free and we use lots of coconut yoghurt and coconut milk. Instead of cheese I buy a vegan cheese by Woolworths (red leicester). Instead of eggs, you can use flax or chia eggs, which is very protein rich too. Instead of nuts, we use lots of roasted broadbeans and roast chickpeas and pumpkin- and sunflower seeds are also a good alternative for nuts.
At the age of one I did lots of finger foods and prepared them in an ice cube tray, so they could just grab when they were up for it.
