Roadmap for your Mini
Which route & schedule do you choose to give peanut & egg to your Mini?
To determine which route is most suitable for your Mini, we have, in collaboration with the pediatrician-allergist of the Food Allergy Prevention Taskforce, created a decision tree.
Answer the following four questions and see which route for giving peanuts & egg best suits your Mini.
- How old is your baby?
Research has shown that introducing allergens under the age of 8 months is recommended.
- Does your baby have eczema?
Babies with moderate to severe eczema have up to 8 to 24 times increased risk of developing a food allergy.
- Has your baby had previous reactions to food?
If your baby has had an acute reaction to another food, the risk of a reaction to another allergen also higher.
- Is there a fear for introduction or are there allergies in the family?
There may be fear because of allergies or reactions in the family.
