Introducing Certain Solid Foods Late Increases Allergy Risk

feeding babyIntroducing some solids foods late in order to prevent kids from becoming allergic to them may be counterproductive.

Finland researchers found that introducing certain foods to kids later makes them sensitized to those foods and increases their risk of developing allergies.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommend babies to be breastfed up to six months of age and after that, parents should introduce solid foods.

But, there is a proof that this method may increase the kids’ likelihood of developing allergic diseases, Dr. Bright Nwaru noted in the Pediatrics Journal.

According to the research findings, early introduction of solid foods may help prevent sensitization from occuring.
