Home 6 Step Scheme for Egg

Is your baby:

  • between 4 and 6 months and has moderate to severe eczema;
  • between 6 and 8 months and there are allergies in the family or there is another reason for fear of introduction
Then you can give egg at home (after consultation with your doctor) via this adapted 6-step schedule.

During 2 days you add increasing amounts of egg to the baby's food in 6 steps. For this you can use this scheme , drawn up in accordance with the guidelines of DAVO dietitians.

Tips for giving eggs to your baby:

  • Make sure your baby can eat fruits and vegetables first. Start with them at 4 months. It is recommended to start with vegetables and give one variety at a time. Suitable vegetables are cauliflower, green peas, beans, broccoli, carrots or pumpkin. If you want to try fruit, start with banana, peach, pear or melon. If this goes well, you can try other fruits and vegetables.
  • Inform the youth doctor, general practitioner or child health clinic in advance
  • The practitioner has told you which acute reactions you should stop at (such as acute skin rash, severe vomiting, acute cough, chest tightness). Act as agreed in advance with the practitioner and contact a doctor if necessary. If possible, take pictures of the (skin) reaction.
  • Make sure you start early on a weekday with the introduction. If there is a reaction, you can always call the doctor.
  • Keep your GP's number to hand & any prescribed medication.
  • Make sure your baby is not sick when you start the introduction schedule
  • Make sure the eczema is under control when you start with the introduction schedule.
  • Take a minimum break of 1 hour between steps.
  • Give well-cooked scrambled or hard-boiled eggs.
  • Stir the egg through the snack. If necessary, grind this fine with the blender or stick blender.

If you have completed all 6 steps, your child is not allergic!

IMPORTANT: Continue to feed your baby egg weekly to prevent an egg allergy!
