Although early allergen introduction is safe, a small percentage of babies may have an allergic reaction. Recent research has shown that there has never been a fatal food allergy reaction in a baby under 1 year of age, but as children get older, reactions become more severe. In 3 independent clinical trials with over 2,000 infant participants, there were zero severe reactions or hospitalizations.
