We understand it can be difficult to tell the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance.
A food intolerance is a sign that our body is having trouble digesting certain foods. These are less severe and oftentimes you can build up a tolerance by reintroducing the foods to your body. Some typical symptoms of an intolerance are gassiness, bloating, or a runny nose. If your baby has an intolerance to any of the 3 foods in our product, you can still use Ready, Set, Food! given that we use very small amounts of each food, making it safe and gentle.
In an allergic reaction, our body’s immune system kicks into overdrive and begins working to protect us from certain proteins in foods, also known as allergens. Some typical symptoms of a reaction include hives, swelling around the lips, or vomiting. If your baby has a known food allergy to peanut, egg, or cow's milk we do not recommend using our product as there is no cure for food allergies.
If you have a milk or egg allergy, we have other versions of our product without either of those foods. Please click here to view them. To learn more about the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance, check out our blog here.
