Ready, Set, Food! is a guided system to make early allergen introduction safe, easy, and convenient. Each daily pre-measured packet mixes easily in a bottle or food. Just shake or stir until dissolved and feed one packet daily.
- Stage 1 is the introduction to the top 3 allergens - peanut, egg, milk, and is only provided once. Start your baby on Stage 1 as early as 4 months of age. Gradually introduce peanut, egg, and milk one at a time, building up to a combined mixture to maintain the exposure for the first 30 days. Mix Stage 1 with breast milk, formula, or food.
- Stage 2 - Maintains “early and often” exposure to peanut, egg, and milk. Start your baby with Stage 2 if you've already introduced these allergens. It is recommended to sustain exposure for at least 3 - 6 months, or until your baby is eating solids and ready to move on to Stage 3. Mix Stage 2 with breast milk, formula, or food.
- Stage 3 is recommended after finishing Stage 2, and if your little one is consistently eating solids such as applesauce, or cheesy mashed potatoes. Once your baby is consistently eating solids, safely expand from peanut, egg, and milk to an additional 6 allergens for at least another 3 - 6 months. If your baby has never started allergen introduction and is eating solids already, it is okay to start with Stage 3. Mix Stage 3 with food only.
- You can use oatmeal to add more diversity to your baby's diet. Oatmeal is substitutable for Stage 3.
