How to Prevent Food Allergy: Current research and international guidelines
Posted: May 29,2022
Food allergy prevention has become a global health priority given the increasing prevalence of food allergy, particularly in young children. In addition, increasing evidence has led to major changes in many guidelines for the early prevention of food allergy. Potential food allergens, such as peanuts and eggs, should be actively introduced between the age of 4 to 6 months, as opposed to the strict avoidance during complementary feeding recommended earlier. Furthermore, emerging evidence suggests a beneficial role of multiple food allergens in early food allergy prevention. Find out more details in this presentation slide.
