Although more than 170 foods have been identified as triggers of food allergies, the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act classifies 8 foods as the major food allergens. Those 8 foods are milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, shellfish (such as shrimp), fish, wheat, and soy. From these 8 foods, only milk, egg, and peanut make up 80% of food allergies found in children, which is why we chose to focus on the introduction of peanuts, eggs, and milk for Ready, Set, Food!. Introducing peanut and egg 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. Other food allergies such as shellfish typically develop as an adult.
