WEBINAR: Food Allergy Prevention in 2024: Best Practices, Tools and Tips for Early Allergen Introduction Success

June 11, 2024, 1:00 p.m. ET

The evidence is clear. Early introduction of peanut, along with continued feeding, leads to a reduction in peanut allergy of as much as 80%. Current NIAID Guidelines support this practice. But what about current evidence, guidelines and guidance about the early introduction of egg and other top allergen foods? And how do clinicians go about integrating this into practice and best support parents?

During this practical webinar our expert presenters will walk you through the current science and guidelines on early food allergy introduction. They will discuss known patient, family and clinician barriers to adoption and provide practical tips, tools and resources you can use right now to overcome resistance. Every parent or caregiver needs to know that early allergen introduction can prevent a food allergy before it starts. The practical guidance and practice pearls provided in this program help you have these critical conversations with every parent or caregiver of an infant.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize current early allergen introduction guidelines and guidance
  • Apply the guidelines effectively into practice
  • Discuss barriers to adoption along with potential strategies to overcome barriers at both the clinician and patient family level
  • Identify resources and tools to support practice integration and to help parents or caregivers safely conduct early allergen introduction at home


This webinar has been brought to you in collaboration with the American Academy of Physicians Associates (AAPA), the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), and FARE. It is accredited by NAPNAP or AAPA (Nurses and Physician Assistants) for 1.0 CME/CE credit. Accreditation for Dietitians is pending.
