Food Allergies

A food allergy occurs when the immune system fails to develop tolerance to harmless food proteins and responds as if they were harmful. Food allergy is defined as an adverse health effect arising from a specific immune response that occurs from exposure to a given food. Join us to learn about the most common food allergies and how to navigate the introduction of these allergens.

Topics Include:

  • The big 8 (food allergens)
  • When to introduce and how much
  • Navigating solid foods & label reading

Ideal for parents with children:

  • 0 – 8 months
