In the past, doctors recommended delaying allergen introduction. Introducing common allergens, like peanuts, eggs, and milk, in an age-appropriate form in the first year of life (after age 4 months) is consistent with the 2020 USDA-HHS Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report. The American Academy of Pediatrics also recommends not delaying the introduction of commonly allergenic foods.
In addition, please refer to the FDA Qualified Health Claim Linking Early Peanut Introduction and Reduced Risk of Developing Peanut Allergy at the bottom of this web page. Ask your pediatrician what is appropriate for your baby.
