Can parents turn the tide on allergy rates and reduce their child’s chances of developing one? According to Columbia-trained pediatric nutritionist, Ali Bandier, MS, RD, CDN the science shows that yes – they can. Former feeding guidelines encouraged parents to limit exposure to high-allergy foods, like peanut butter or shellfish, and refrain from offering those foods until at least two years of age. Recent data shows the opposite: earlier and regular exposure to these foods can reduce developing food allergies. Ali helps navigate the ever-changing food landscape, specifically noting the significant shifts in the science of food allergies, to support parents on their feeding journies.
