The Promoting Introduction to Prevent Peanut Allergy (PIPPA) Project in Western Australia

PIPPA Project in WARecruitment has commenced in WA at Princess Margaret and Fiona Stanley Hospitals for the PIPPA Project, a trial of a new service supporting families to introduce peanut to infants before 12 months of age in accordance with recently updated infant feeding guidelines.  Participants will be invited to attend a PIPPA Clinic to feed their baby peanut butter for the first time with the support of nurses and doctors, and families will then be contacted when their child is 12 months of age to complete a brief telephone questionnaire.

Your child may be eligible to take part if they are less than 12 months of age, have never eaten peanut before, and have one or more risk factor for peanut allergy including eczema, allergy to a food other than peanut, a sibling with a food allergy, or two or more first-degree relatives with any allergic disease (eczema, asthma, hay fever or food allergy).
