Benefits Give Kids Eat Beans Early
The National Institute of Health (NIH) in the United States advised the parents to introduce their children to consume nuts early. Giving children considered peanut early can protect them from a peanut allergy in the future.
In early 2015, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that infants in high risk of developing a peanut allergy. The organization also recommends that infants be introduced to the diet of nuts. "Preventing the development of peanut allergy will improve and save lives and lower health care costs," said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is also part of the NIH.
In a test conducted eight months ago, NIH saw a baby does not react to an allergy test. According to scientists, allergies occur because the baby is exposed to peanut protein from the air. While eating nuts can indirectly help babies avoid allergies.
For infants high risk of allergy or eczema, can be fed peanuts since the age of four months. Meanwhile, infants with low allergy risk can start a diet of nuts since the age of six months.
