Food allergies have more than doubled over the last generation and nearly 320,000 children born this year will develop a food allergy. Today roughly two children in every classroom in the U.S. have a food allergy. The good news is parents can help protect their children from being a statistic with solutions like SpoonfulOne.
Science, data, and groundbreaking research have shown that with early food introduction and routine feeding of diverse foods, it’s possible to lower a baby’s risk of developing a food allergy. In response to new research – and the growing problem of food allergies in children – the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) now recommends introducing babies to solids, common allergens, and diverse foods around 4-6 months of age. Don’t wait and miss this critical window when babies’ immune systems are developing.
Based on a global body of evidence, and our understanding that feeding common allergens to babies consistently can be extremely difficult, SpoonfulOne was created by world-renowned pediatric allergist, Dr. Kari Nadeau. SpoonfulOne helps protect babies from developing a food allergy. Each serving includes all of the food groups responsible for over 90% of food allergies. The delicious products come in three formats: a Mix-in powder, Puffs, and Oat Crackers. They are easy to take on the go, making it simple to introduce SpoonfulOne.
"SpoonfulOne has a very clear purpose: to help create the first generation of food allergy-free children. We desperately want to empower parents and replace their worries and doubts with complete confidence. The food allergy science today and the data that power SpoonfulOne are groundbreaking. As a pediatrician and mom, I am emphatic in my recommendation of SpoonfulOne as an easy way to ensure you get all sorts of foods in your baby's diet to help protect them from developing a food allergy. There is a false sense of security in non-intervention or delayed introduction of common allergens. The notion that, if I don't do anything, they will stay perfect and healthy. In reality, we know the act of waiting on introducing foods puts infants at risk,” said Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, pediatrician and Chief Medical Officer at SpoonfulOne.
Our food allergy protection goals and efforts span beyond the United States. Through a strategic partnership with Nestlé Health Science, we will scale our solution to children all across the globe over the next few years. “Given the accelerating rates of childhood food allergy not just in the U.S. but in Europe, China, Australia, and beyond, it is imperative that we think globally about proactive solutions. Our collaboration with Nestlé Health Science is a clear step toward our ultimate goal: A world without food allergy," said Dr. Kari Nadeau, co-founder and inventor of SpoonfulOne.
