Pediatrician & Health Professional Resources
New guidelines from the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID) encourage parents to introduce baby-friendly peanut foods to infants as early as 4-6 months of age—depending on their child’s risk—to prevent a potential peanut allergy. Despite these recommendations, many families are still apprehensive. Yet, research shows that parents and caregivers are 47 percent more likely to introduce peanut products to their infant if it is recommended by their pediatrician or family doctor.
Below are easy-to-use resources to help you communicate the new guidelines to your patients and show them when and how to introduce peanut foods. Download and use these resources on your website, share via social media or make them available in your office waiting room royalty free.
