Introducing the Most Common Allergens: Our Guided, Staged System
Our gentle, guided system is the only complete early allergen introduction system that mixes in with a bottle, allowing parents to start at 4 months of age and follow medical guidelines. We’ll break down our gentle, staged system so you can learn more about our safe, evidence-based approach to early allergen introduction.
Stages 1-2 introduce peanut, egg, and milk - the top three allergens that represent the most common childhood food allergies. These allergens are introduced one-at-a-time to maximize safety.
Stage 3 introduces the 9 of the top allergens -- peanut, egg, milk, almond, walnut, cashew, sesame, wheat, soy -- which account for over 90% of food allergies. Introducing these allergens follows the new USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans which recommend that: “potentially allergenic foods (e.g., peanuts, egg, cow milk products, tree nuts, wheat...soy) should be introduced...to an infant’s diet.”

We’ve got you covered!
Here’s our guide to choosing the right stage to start with your child:
My baby hasn’t started solids yet - Our Stage 1-2 system is the only early allergen introduction solution that mixes in easily with a bottle
My baby has a peanut, egg, or milk intolerance - Many families choose to re-introduce the foods that their baby is intolerant to using our gentle system. If you can re-introduce these foods, we recommend starting off with Stage 1. Stage 1 is our gentlest system, that only introduces (or re-introduces) small amounts of peanut, egg and milk and is still gentle enough to use for those babies with a food sensitivity. In fact, the protein amounts we use are equivalent to less than 1 teaspoon of yogurt or cow’s milk, 1/8th teaspoon of peanut butter, and 1/250th of a cooked egg.
My baby is exclusively breastfed - Stages 1 and 2 can be offered to baby via bottle alternatives. Simply add Ready. Set. Food! to expressed breastmilk and offer to baby via spoon feeding, syringe feeding, cup feeding or a breastfeeding supplementer. With Ready. Set. Food!, breastfeeding mothers can continue to nurse without having to introduce solids before their baby is ready to eat, while at the same time making it easy to start early allergen introduction. Medical studies show that early allergen introduction had no negative impact on breastfeeding.
My baby is following a baby led weaning approach - Stages 1 and 2 mixes easily with water. Mix in with water and offer alongside your baby’s baby led weaning snacks or meals!
My baby is eating solids regularly - Stage 3 is perfect for your happy eater and mixes in easily with your baby’s favorite foods
My baby has a milk allergy - Our dairy free system is the perfect way to introduce peanut and/or egg and maintain exposure to these common allergens.
My baby has eczema - Up to 1 in 3 babies with eczema will develop a food allergy so it is vital to introduce allergens if your baby has eczema. In fact, new guidelines from leading medical organizations specifically recommend early introduction for babies with eczema. All of our stages are specifically designed for babies with eczema.
