BY DR. WENDY SUE SWANSON
More than ever before, children today are at an increased risk of developing a food allergy. Based on new landmark studies, we now know that protection from developing a food allergy is possible.
In the past, pediatricians like me advised parents to start a new food cautiously and wait a few days until introducing the next one. But now, we encourage parents to incorporate new and diverse foods earlier and more quickly into a baby’s diet.
In fact, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology now recommends inclusion of all potential allergic foods early in a baby’s diet, between about 4 to 6 months of age. And new research that keeps unfolding continues to support these recommendations.
I certainly know how hard it is to get a diverse diet into your infants every single day, and more importantly, how critical it is to maintain that diversity through early childhood. That’s why we developed SpoonfulOne.
Each SpoonfulOne product includes all food groups associated with over 90% of food allergies, making it easy to follow the new guidelines.
With everyday feedings of SpoonfulOne, your baby can grow up accustomed to these foods. We have Mix-Ins for babies as young as 4 months; Puffs for babies 6 months of age or older; and Oat Crackers for toddlers a year and up – making SpoonfulOne the most complete food allergy protection system.
