Stage 1 + 2 + 3 - Complete System
Introduce 9 top allergens with bottle and food mix-ins over a 6 or 12-month plan
Starting as early as 4 months of age, introduce babies to 9 top allergens safely over a 6 or 12-month plan; moving your baby through all three stages of our entire system. For 12-month plans, the first 6 months will be a staged introduction to Peanut, Egg, and Milk; expanding exposure to another 6 top allergens: Cashew, Almond, Walnut, Sesame, Soy, and Wheat. Always no mess, all organic, natural, and no added sugar.
Note: for 6-month plans, Stage 3 introduction begins in month 4 instead.

Why is Ready, Set, Food! the best way to introduce allergens?
Ready, Set, Food! is the best option for introducing allergens because we make the process simple. It is important to note that for early allergen introduction parents need to frequently feed allergenic foods such as peanut, egg, and milk to their babies. Parents have found that trying to do this on their own is difficult and time-consuming, which is why we've created Ready, Set, Food! to help make early allergen introduction easy.
When should I start my baby on Ready, Set, Food! and for how long?
The 2020 USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans and other prominent medical associations (NIH, AAP, AAAAI) recommend starting babies as early as 4 months of age with food allergen introduction.
We recommend starting the Stage 1 introduction, and Stage 2 for continued exposure together anytime between 4 - 12 months of age. You should sustain exposure to Stage 2 for at least 6 months.
Stage 3 is designed as the next step from Stage 2, and expands allergen exposure from 3 to 9 allergens including tree nuts, sesame, wheat and soy. However, if your baby hasn't started allergen introduction, but is already eating solid foods, feel free to start with Stage 3. Continue on Stage 3 for at least 6 months.
Feeding foods like peanut, egg, and milk only once or twice is NOT enough. We recommend using Ready, Set, Food!, for at least 6 months, or until your baby is regularly eating the allergens at least 3 times a week. We designed Ready, Set, Food!, to make it safe and easy for parents to not only introduce the allergens, but to sustain exposure as well.
Is Ready, Set, Food! safe?
Yes, Ready, Set, Food! is safe. Feeding allergenic foods to babies under 1 year of age is safe and is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Ready, Set, Food! makes it even safer by starting with a small dose, one allergen at a time. Ready, Set, Food! Stage 1 starts with peanut, egg and milk, introducing ultra-low doses of each allergen before slowly increasing to the maintenance amount used in the clinical studies.
As a result, the initial allergen exposures are much gentler than what families typically feed their infants, 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. Ready, Set, Food! is the best option for introducing allergens because we make the process simple. It is important to note that for early allergen introduction, parents need to frequently feed allergenic foods such as peanut, egg, and milk to their babies. Parents have found that trying to do this on their own is difficult and time-consuming, which is why we've created Ready, Set, Food! to help make early allergen introduction easy, convenient and safe.
How do I use Ready, Set, Food!?
Ready, Set, Food! is a guided system to make early allergen introduction safe, easy and convenient. Each daily pre-measured packet mixes easily in a bottle or food. Just shake or stir until dissolved and feed one packet daily.
Stage 1 is the introduction to the top 3 allergens - peanut, egg, milk. Start your baby on Stage 1 as early as 4 months of age. Gradually introduce peanut, egg and milk one at a time for the first 30 days. Mix Stage 1 with breast milk, formula, or food.
Stage 2 - Maintains “early and often” exposure to peanut, egg and milk. Start your baby with Stage 2 if you've already introduced these allergens. It is recommended to sustain exposure for at least 3 - 6 months.
Stage 3 is recommended after finishing Stage 2, and if your little one is consistently eating solids such as applesauce, or cheesy mashed potatoes. Once your baby is consistently eating solids, safely expand from peanut, egg and milk to an additional top 6 allergens for at least another 3 - 6 months. If your baby has never started allergen introduction, and is eating solids already, it is okay to start with Stage 3. Mix Stage 3 with food only.
