Real-world evidence for introducing allergens to babies to prevent food allergy
A new study that looked at anaphylaxis hospital admissions reports that the rate of increase in serious allergic reactions to food among children has flattened since ASCIA updated its infant feeding and allergy prevention guidelines. You can read more about this study here. To help parents introduce the common allergy-causing foods to their babies during the first year of life, the National Allergy Strategy has an easy-to-understand, practical website called Nip Allergies in the Bub. It has recipes, age-appropriate food ideas, information on managing an allergic reaction, and more.
