In 2021, the North American Allergy Societies (AAAAI, ACAAI, and CSACI*) launched a consensus doc primarily based on just lately revealed knowledge indicating, “the robust potential of methods to forestall the event of meals allergy.”
Along with offering suggestions masking threat evaluation, introduction and common feeding of the highest 9 allergens, in addition to maternal food regimen concerns, the consensus doc highlights the vital position major care suppliers can play in serving to households navigate the dramatic shift from avoidance of meals allergens to lively, early allergen introduction and routine feeding. They suggest that Pediatricians, “implement speaking factors surrounding early allergen introduction into all well-child visits, starting at delivery and repeated at age 2, 4, 6, and 9 months.”
- All infants, particularly these with extreme eczema
- Start early allergen feeding round 4-6 months of age, primarily based on developmental readiness, when strong meals are launched
- Proceed feeding allergens routinely after they’ve been launched
- Feed all prime 9 meals allergens: peanut, egg, cow’s milk, soy, wheat, tree nuts, sesame, fish, and shellfish
