Introducing babies to peanut butter, eggs, and shellfish at an early age could prevent them from developing food allergies.
A study from the Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology found that parents should start introducing the allergenic foods between four and six months of age. Researchers say the body could treat it as a foreign substance if you wait.
They say allergists should be consulted when a child has eczema or an existing food allergy.
