FARE Issues Statement Regarding the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines

Statement to be attributed to Lisa Gable, Chief Executive Officer, FARE: “Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released the 2020-2025 edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and FARE is thrilled to see the inclusion of more comprehensive dietary guidance around the early introduction of egg and peanut for infants and toddlers. The early introduction of proteins that can trigger an allergic reaction is a leading priority for FARE and is woven throughout much of our work, including our Baby’s First initiative and the Start Eating Early Diet (SEED) study, which is grounded in the success of the 2015 FARE-funded Learning Early About Peanut Allergy (LEAP) study. We look forward to continuing to work with both agencies as well as leaders in food allergy to advance comprehensive clinical research and education strategies in multi-allergen early introduction.”
