The evidence is clear. Early introduction of peanut, along with continued feeding, leads to a reduction in peanut allergy of as much as 80%. Current NIAID Guidelines support this practice. But what about current evidence, guidelines and guidance about the early introduction of egg and other top allergen foods? And how do clinicians go about integrating this into practice and best support parents?
