How and when should you introduce eggs to your baby?
With the recent talk about peanut allergies and new guidelines from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to introduce peanuts to infants sooner rather than later, I’m also thinking about other common allergens like eggs.
Last week, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued guidelines recommending the early introduction of peanuts to infants to help prevent peanut allergies.
Although it was once thought that delaying the introduction of peanuts to high-risk children would help prevent peanut allergies, the new guidelines are based on research that shows that early introduction significantly decreases the risk of developing the allergy.
