FARE Webinar - The Impact of Early Diet on Allergy Prevention
« on: November 05, 2020, 04:29:44 PM »
Eat Up, Baby! The Impact of Early Diet on Food Allergy Prevention
Carina Venter, PhD, RD

Date: Wednesday, November 11, 2020
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET

Summary: Food allergies are increasing in terms of prevalence, severity and complexity. Early introduction of food allergens, mainly peanut and egg, has provided some insight into food allergy prevention, but introducing a food allergen early prevents allergy only to that specific food. Alongside early introduction of food allergens, overall diet diversity has also been shown to reduce the development of food allergies into later childhood. This webinar will give you practical tips on introducing food allergens to your baby’s diet, maintaining regular intake of these foods, and building overall diet diversity from the earliest beginnings of solid food introduction.

This live webinar is approved for one hour of continuing education credit from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).

Please send questions in advance to Karie Mulkowsky at Registration is FREE and a recording of the webinar will be sent to all registered attendees.
