A large portion in the population of Americans are suffering from allergies, and that portion continues to become large. Indeed, there are so many lives that are taken due to their allergies being triggered by smell, taste and breathing in allergens. Therefore, there are many parents and caregivers who are wanting to know if there is something they can do in preventing food allergies to develop in the early years of a child.
Thankfully, with the hard work done by scientists and researchers, there are ways that allergies can be prevented. Today, there is the existence of new guidelines on the prevention of peanut allergy among children who are likely to develop an allergy. With the technology existing in this digital age, there are now products and studies that provided more information on this allergy.
In the past, women who are new to motherhood will be advised by their parents and their in-laws to not allow their children to consume eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish or the food items that can trigger an allergic reaction. Indeed, this is in fearing that the children already have an allergy to those food items. However, a new study presents itself, that such belief is wrong and outdated.
Nowadays, new fathers and mothers are now infusing those food items to the meals that are eaten by their children. As obvious as this may sound, it is with the exception of fish and shellfish, for the digestive systems of their babies are still not able to handle those kinds of food. However, eggs, and peanut are now manufactured differently in order for parent to easily integrate those ingredients to the meals.
A delay in the introduction of such ingredients does not help in reducing the risk on a child developing a food allergy. However, according to the reports, such is actually cutting the chances of babies not developing the allergy. This research was made possible by taking in parents and their babies who either have delayed the introduction or allowed their babies to taste peanut butter.
Today, existing are also products that can help couples in preventing the allergies. There are products that have peanut puffs and power that will help couples to add peanut to the meals of their infants. Couples can mix this product to their breast milk, and yogurt without worrying about chunks of peanut.
There are manufacturers, as well, who are making specially formulated baby food. These manufactures are helping couples to introduce the common allergens such as peanuts, eggs, tree nuts, shellfish and fish. This food is packed in pouches and contains a tiny amount of allergen protection which is then blended with a fruit puree that is organic.
Moreover, there are also power mix-ins products. Other than the allergens mentioned above, these goods also include almonds, soy, wheat, shrimp, hazelnuts, cashews, cod oat, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, and also vitamin D. The infusion of such food items are necessary in order to combat the development of food allergies, therefore, saving the lives of millions of people.
