🍳🥖How to introduce allergens to baby?🍫🍼
📝The guidance on introducing allergens during weaning has changed recently...& lots of people are confused as a result
🥜Latest advice is that we should try to introduce allergens early on during weaning - due to some major research in this area showing that doing so could be beneficial in reducing the risk of an allergy developing
👶🏼Infants who are not “at risk” of developing allergies should be introduced to them at around six months of age - alongside other foods
🍳It’s also a good idea to start with cooked eggs e.g. scrambled or boiled cut into strips or cooked & blended
🥜& then peanuts that are ground & mixed in with some porridge or as a thin spread of nut butter, for example
🏥If your little one is at risk of allergies (see blog via link in my bio) they may benefit from earlier introduction to egg & peanuts as long as they are still developmentally ready for solids
🌟Here are a few tips from @paediatricdietitianschichester on introducing allergens to baby...
✅When baby is well
✅In small amounts
✅As the only new food that day
✅Early in the day to spot a reaction
✅Leave a few days gap before introducing another allergen ✅Offer the food fairly regularly in baby’s diet if there are no signs of allergy
✅Start offering allergens when they are developmentally ready for solid foods and after their first tastes (I recommend veggies first) as soon as you start experimenting with more variety.
📝There is so much more information in the blog that Penny has kindly written for me so please do check that out.
✅ I want this to be the go to place for anyone who is weaning and worried about allergies!

Do I need to wait until my baby clears her eczema, to introduce an allergen?
In case of suspected egg allergy in EBF baby, would you recommend to do an allergy test before introducing? Many thanks for the great topic! Xx
I never thought about Allergens until today when my 2 year old gave my 5 month old peanut butter on toast! (All good!) Then at dinner Amelie and I were having fish and spaghetti, Rico was having beans on toast, until Amelie gave him a prawn and spaghetti cooked with celery, another allergen! (All good!) and Strawberries and scrambled egg! #yummy #whodoesntloveastrawberry #justgetstuckin
My LO got a rash twice after eating eggs age 6 months (the second time because she grabbed it off another plate!). When can I try introducing egg again? She is now 1 year
How would I know if my baby is at risk for an allergy? Thank you!
So nervous about introducing allergens as I have anaphylaxic allergies myself and my son has CMPA 😩 thank you for this
I introduced egg to my little one, he had a little spoonful and he had an allergic reaction 😪 now I’m feeling anxious about what foods I introduce to him... I don’t really know where to go from here 🤷🏻♀️
