Introducing babies as young as four months old to peanut, egg, and milk




 


We're excited to announce that Advocate Aurora has partnered with Ready, Set, Food! to launch a food allergy education program to teach parents that all babies at 4 months should eat peanut, egg, and milk in Wisconsin and Illinois. The educational program includes:

"I recommend early and sustained allergen introduction for all babies starting at 4-6 months of age, based on the current guidelines."
