If you or a family member have a food allergy, then early allergen introduction is particularly important given the 1 in 7 risk of your baby developing a food allergy. Our product is a safe way to introduce these allergens, as we use very small amounts of each food and slowly build up a tolerance. Studies have also shown that reactions in babies under the age of one are less severe and have never been fatal.
If you have a family member with a food allergy at home, please know that our packets are foil-lined to help reduce cross-contamination. Additionally, we recommend dedicating a bottle or bowl and spoon to be used only when feeding allergenic foods such as peanuts.
If you or the baby's caregiver has a peanut, egg, or milk allergy, you can opt to wear gloves when feeding the baby Ready, Set, Food!. To view more tips on how food-allergy families can safely use Ready, Set, Food!, click here.
