Yes, Ready, Set, Food! is safe. Feeding allergenic foods to babies under 1 year of age is safe and is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Ready, Set, Food! makes it even safer by starting with a small dose, one allergen at a time. Ready, Set, Food! Stage 1 starts with peanut, egg and milk, introducing ultra-low doses of each allergen before slowly increasing to the maintenance amount used in the clinical studies.
As a result, the initial allergen exposures are much gentler than what families typically feed their infants, equivalent to less than 1 teaspoon of yogurt or cow’s milk, 1/8th teaspoon of peanut butter, and 1/250th of a cooked egg. Ready, Set, Food! is the best option for introducing allergens because we make the process simple. It is important to note that for early allergen introduction, parents need to frequently feed allergenic foods such as peanut, egg, and milk to their babies. Parents have found that trying to do this on their own is difficult and time-consuming, which is why we've created Ready, Set, Food! to help make early allergen introduction easy, convenient and safe.
