Hi, is there a typo in this summary? I may just be tired, but I don't see how this reflects a risk reduction (at all, let alone 67%): Thanks, Naomi However, when the authors evaluated the infants that were able to maintain the study protocol by eating these foods consistently each week, they did find a significant difference in rates of food allergy: - 4% in the early introduction group versus - 3% in the standard group On Fri, Mar 4, 2016 at 3:39 PM, Kids With Food Allergies <...

Hi Goodsammy, The issue of introducing peanuts to babies is not whole peanuts or even peanut butter; it's peanut protein that would be in something like bamba , a baby biscuit that has peanut protein in it. But to answer your question, studies have been done that show that dry roasted peanuts appear to be more allergenic than boiled peanuts. Lynda

High-risk infants begin eating peanut-containing food as early as 4-6 months. Infants are considered at risk if they have severe eczema, egg allergy or both. A qualified healthcare provider should perform testing first to see if an allergy already exists. I agree wholeheartedly re: the allergy testing. We had to wait until our child was 1 years old and found out through reactions when we tried our child on new foods. As a new parent, it was a terrifying experience to go through without the...
