What is the latest science on adding food allergens to into a baby's diet early?
Nearly 150 different studies have been done exploring early introduction of peanuts, eggs, milk, wheat, fish, shellfish, and tree nuts.
The best known study is the LEAP study. It showed that children at high risk for peanut allergy who ate a peanut-containing snack-food at least three times each week, developed an allergy 3% of the time. By comparison, high-risk children who avoided peanuts developed an allergy 17% of the time. The study implies that 80% of peanut allergies in high-risk children might be preventable will early introduction.
A larger look across all the studies by Ierodiakonou (see study) suggested that "early introduction of egg or peanut to the infant diet was associated with lower risk of developing egg or peanut allergy."
Do all children need early exposure to allergens?
The American Academy of Pediatrics in 2017 recommended that all children should be given peanuts “freely” and children with mild to severe eczema should be introduced to peanuts early.
