Providing education on infant food allergy prevention and integrating Ready, Set, Food! into Snap, Inc's family benefits program

 

LOS ANGELES – March 26, 2019 – We are excited to partner with Snap, Inc. to provide educational resources on infant food allergy prevention in addition to the distribution of our early allergen introduction system through their family benefits program.

The Rise in Food Allergies and New Research on Prevention

Food allergies are on the rise with more than 1 in 10 children now suffering from at least one. Thankfully, recent landmark studies (LEAP, EAT, PETIT) have proven that exposing babies to food allergens early and often can reduce their risk of developing allergies by 67–80%. These studies have also been supported by new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI).   

Partnering with Snap, Inc. to Improve Employee Lives

We're looking forward to helping Snap, Inc. employees reduce their baby’s risk of developing a food allergy by up to 80% with Ready, Set, Food! now a part of their family benefits program. We're not only making a real difference in the lives of their employees and their children, but also showing a positive ROI starting in just year 1 of our partnership" said Daniel Zakowski, CEO, Ready, Set, Food! “Just like our brand and mission, Snap, Inc. is committed to empowering their employees and families, with more tools than ever to be proactive about their health.”

As part of the partnership, Ready, Set, Food! will provide their medical expertise, educational content, and innovative early allergen introduction subscription system as an addition to Snap, Inc’s extensive family benefits program.

“We're excited that Ready, Set, Food! helps prevent 70-80% of childhood food allergies (like peanuts). You avoid allergies by introducing certain foods earlier in small quantities. Everyone wins. Healthier kids, happier parents, and fewer medical claims. We're moving forward with this program anticipating real cost savings in our self-insured program." says Dave Allen, Sr. Director of Benefits at Snap, Inc.

Ready, Set, Food! will be available through Snap, Inc’s Family Benefits program and is currently recommended by more than 230 pediatricians, allergists and dietitians to their patients.
