Date: November 16th, 2016

When it comes to eggs, letting the babies enjoy a teaspoon at the age of 4 or 6 months indicates a reduction in allergy levels by 46 percent. This is suggested to be better than waiting for to do so later on in their lives. With peanuts, infants tasting it at 4 months to 11 months were linked with a 71 percent reduction in the development of allergies.

Dr. Robert Boyle said that the suggestion posted by these findings is that eggs and peanut should be among the first foods a baby encounters. He is from Imperial College London where he works as a pediatric allergy researcher. He did not shy away from adding that most doctors wouldn’t recommend this.

Dr. Anne Monique Nuyt, who co-authored both studies, studies said that these studies are a pointer of how vital it is to follow up the health of preterm babies. Anne is a University of Montreal professor working within the department of pediatrics.
