Are you worried about the increase in food allergies? Many parents are, especially those parents who are beginning to feed their children solid food for the very first time.
Might your child be allergic to certain foods, even at such a young age?
Fortunately, the American Academy of Pediatrics has some new information for parents regarding this increasingly important issue.
The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology released new guidelines on introducing solid foods to babies and how doing so may impact allergy risk.
This is the first time specific guidelines have been outlined for how and when to introduce highly allergenic foods, including cow's milk, eggs, soy, wheat, peanut, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.
So, when is it really OK to feed your infant certain foods like peanuts, eggs, and dairy?
Join us and special guest, Dr. Jennifer Kim, as she gives guidance to families on how to introduce these foods, including the age at which to start, and if there is a particular order to follow. She also explains some of the science behind these foods and allergy risk in infants.
