LEAPing Past Food Allergies: How and When to Introduce Potential Allergens
Reported food allergies have been on the rise for the last decade. Groundbreaking findings from research led to new guidelines recommending early introduction of peanut foods in infancy to reduce the risk of peanut allergies. But what about other allergens such as egg, milk, and fish? Join internationally recognized researcher and pediatric allergist, Dr. Gideon Lack, and food allergy expert, Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, to review the latest science and feeding recommendations for reducing the risk of food allergies.

After attending this webinar, the attendee will be able to:

• Describe the latest science and feeding recommendations for reducing the risk of food allergies.
• Utilize the latest research to guide patients and clients on when and how to introduce common allergens, including peanuts, eggs, and others.
• Incorporate the latest National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines on infant feeding practice into their patient and client education and counseling.
