Baby Peanut Butter Puffs
Puffworks® baby organic peanut butter puffs are specially formulated for your infant with peanut allergy prevention in mind:
- Dissolves quickly
- 2 grams of peanut protein per serving (to conform to the Learning Early About Peanut Allergies (LEAP) study)
- 100% Whole Grain
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommend introducing peanut to infants starting as early as 4-6 months of age.
The new guidelines from the NIAID and the AAP are based on the findings of the Learning Early About Peanut Allergies (LEAP) study, which showed over an 80 percent reduction in the development of peanut allergy in infants who ate peanut food compared to those who did not.
Participants in the LEAP study who were given a peanut-containing food, ate 6 grams of peanut protein per week. So how do you ensure your little one is eating enough peanut protein? We’ve done the math for you: One bag of Puffworks baby provides 2 grams of peanut protein per serving. Three (3) bags a week provides enough peanut protein to conform to the LEAP study serving guidelines. Plus, Puffworks baby peanut butter puffs also offer a delicious way to promote long-term nutritious snacking:
- Good source of protein
- Low sodium
This product should be fed to supervised children who have already started eating solid foods. If your child is high-risk for peanut allergy, consult your pediatrician before serving.
What Health Experts Are Saying about
Early Peanut Introduction:
"Have infants eat allergenic foods early and have them eat these foods often."
– David M. Fleischer, MD, Guidelines for life after LEAP, Contemporary Pediatrics, 4/3/2017
"Early introduction in this group [low-risk], though not emphasized in the guidelines, should contribute to lower overall rate of peanut allergy."
– Food Allergy Research and Education, Webinar 1/2017
"Infants without eczema or any other food allergy aren’t likely to develop an allergy to peanuts. To be on the safe side, it’s still a good idea for them to start eating peanuts from an early age."
– Peanut Allergy; Early Exposure is Key to Prevention, NIH Director's Blog, 1/10/2017
"My clinical approach has long favored early peanut introduction...For low-risk infants, I encourage home-based introduction of peanut (not as whole nuts)."
– George Du Toit, MD, LEAP investigator, NEJM online forum, 2/25/15
