Early Introduction of Eggs, Peanuts May Cut Kids' Allergy Risk: Study

TUESDAY, Sept. 20, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Introducing babies to eggs or peanuts early on may help reduce their risk of food allergies, a new analysis finds.

Researchers reviewed 146 previous studies that examined when babies were given foods that often trigger reactions, as well as their risk of food allergies or autoimmune diseases.

They discovered that the timing of food introduction may affect allergy risk, but they found no similar link for autoimmune disease.
