Allergen Introduction: 3 Ways to Introduce Allergens
Nutrition Science is at our core and guides every decision we make. According to landmark studies like LEAP, PETIT, and EAT - we know that offering allergens early (4-6 months of age) and often (several days per week) may help prevent food allergies by 80%!
That's why we're proud to be the only baby food company to offer an Allergen Introduction Menu.
3 EASY WAYS TO INTRODUCE ALLERGENS
SQUARE BABY MEALS
Square Baby Meals like Almond Butter & Banana (almonds, wheat), Hazelnut Pumpkin Pie (hazelnuts, soy, egg), and Blueberry Crush (yogurt/milk) are a delicious and simple way to offer allergens early and often.
Also, you can add scrambled egg, nut butters or powders, yogurt, or cooked, deboned fish to Square Baby meals as another way to increase their exposure to allergens during the week -- and still get a balanced, veggie-forward meal!
NUT BUTTER PUFFS
Try these nut butter puffs from our friends at Mission MightyMe to master those tiny pincer grasp skills. Plus, you'll get both tree nuts and peanuts into little diets for allergy prevention -- without diluting nut butters or grinding nuts!
