Giving peanuts to babies sounds scary, is that safe?

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 2g of peanut protein three times each week, developed 80% fewer peanut allergies than babies who avoided peanuts.

The EAT study showed that babies as young as 3 months could safely start eating all 8 common allergens, and reduce the risk of food allergies, but only if they ate enough of each protein each week.

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.
