New ASCIA Guide for health professionals on introduction of peanut to infants with severe eczema and/or food allergy

May 18, 2017:   

A new ASCIA Guide for introduction of peanut to infants with severe eczema and/or food allergy has been developed, to provide options and information for health professionals (particularly GPs) about introducing peanut to infants with severe eczema and/or existing food allergy.  These infants are considered to have an increased risk of developing peanut allergy.   

This guide should be used in conjunction with ASCIA Guidelines for infant feeding and allergy prevention.

An updated version of parent information on how to introduce solid foods for allergy prevention is also available.

Health professionals can access all 3 documents at www.allergy.org.au/health-professionals/papers/infant-feeding-allergy-prevention

Parents can access the Guidelines and information about how to introduce solid foods for allergy prevention at www.allergy.org.au/patients/allergy-prevention
