Egg and Peanut Allergies in Childhood
Recent findings have concluded that having kids eat eggs and peanuts early in life may lessen their risk of developing allergies to these foods later on in life. Researchers analyzed information from around 150 previous studies involving more than 200,000 children. These looked at exactly when specific foods were introduced to children in their first year of life. The results demonstrated that kids who were fed eggs when they were ages 4 to 6 months old were 40 percent less likely to develop an egg allergy, compared with those who were introduced to eggs later on life. Also, kids who were fed food that contained peanuts (such as peanut butter) when they were 4 to 11 months old were 70 percent less likely to develop a peanut allergy. The findings suggest that “introducing egg
and peanut at an early age may prevent the development of egg and peanut allergy, the two most common childhood food allergies,” said the study co-author Dr. Robert Boyle, a pediatric allergy researcher at Imperial College London.
