This Product Claims It Can Prevent Peanut Allergies In Young Children

'Hello, Peanut!' is making it easy to expose babies to peanuts safely

As a parent, it can be difficult to decide what's best for our kids. There's conflicting information every way we look, and worst of all, it's constantly changing. 

If you have more than one child, you may have been surprised to learn of the new guidelines regarding when to start feeding infants peanuts. Despite being told for years not to feed them to our kids before they're at least a year old, recent recommendations now state that infants should have the foodstuff in their diets from four months old in a bid to prevent peanut allergies. 

Understandably, the idea of introducing peanuts to their infants has many parents spooked. And since the guidance out there has so far been vague, many are unsure how much to give and when to do so. 

Enter Hello, Peanut! One allergist has made life simple for us by creating a system that allows parents to easily and gradually introduce small amounts of peanut to their infant over the course of seven days. 

The Introduction Kit is $25 and includes seven introductory packets and one maintenance packet. Each packet contains a blend of sprouted oat flakes and peanut powder (which increases daily). The packets can be mixed into your baby's warm or cold food and do not need to be heated or cooked. This can be continued with follow-on maintenance packets until the toddler is old enough to chew and swallow peanuts safely. 

The FDA approved (Food and Drug Administration) product claims to actually reduce peanut allergies in infants. As such, the FDA has allowed it to carry a label saying that it may reduce allergies in susceptible infants.

Earlier in the year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued new guidelines which stated that introducing a small amount of peanut can actually reduce the risk of them developing an allergy (peanut eaters were 80 percent more likely to develop one than those who didn't eat them at an early age). 

Hello, Peanut! follows these rules and could help prevent your kid from developing, what could be, a deadly allergy to peanuts.
