Introduction of Allergenic Foods to Infants, especially Peanuts: Interim Guidance for Canadian Dietitians

Introduction of Allergenic Foods to Infants, especially Peanuts: Interim Guidance for Canadian Dietitians This interim DC communication provides information on the scientific evidence regarding the introduction of peanuts to infants and how the current dietetic practice recommendations agree and differ from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) recommendations published in January 2017. The key differences between these new NIAID guidelines and current Canadian Nutrition for Healthy Term Infant (NHTI) recommendations are in the different definitions of “at risk” infants, the strength of wording for introducing peanut containing food early, and the recommendation to undergo physician supervised testing/feeding before introduction for a small subset of very high-risk infants.
