Back to events


Guidelines for feeding babies have changed monumentally over the past two decades, particularly regarding the introduction of potentially allergenic foods. This coincides with a steep increase in the number of children who have developed food allergies. In this webinar, we’ll cover:


  • a brief history of feeding recommendations for infants and how the current guidance in the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans provides food allergy prevention benefits for infants and families
  • the most important research and latest scientific evidence about how and when babies should be fed potential allergens, particularly peanut and egg, to prevent food allergies
  • concrete examples of how Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) and Nutrition and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (NDTRs) can provide evidence-based, practical guidance to parents and caregivers to overcome barriers to early introduction of potential allergens


Registration is FREE, and a recording of the webinar will be sent to all registered attendees.
