Introducing Allergens to Infants

Introducing Allergens to Infants

When your baby is ready, introduce foods according to what the family usually eats, regardless of whether the food is considered to be a common food allergen. Using the Béaba Babycook®, you will be able to create meals to suit your child's needs, knowing exactly what is in each dish. If you are concerned about food allergies in your child, or there is a history of allergy in your family, talk this over with your infant's paediatrician before introducing solids.
