HELLO PEANUT!


An innovative way to introduce babies to peanuts

 

 

Did you know you should be introducing your infant to peanuts before six months of age? 

 

Scientific research shows early introduction of peanuts to infants helps prevent peanut allergies from developing. 

 (LEAP Study 2015, LEAP-On Study 2016, EAT Study 2016)

Hello, Peanut! is an innovative way to thoughtfully introduce peanuts to infants EARLY. 

It is the only system available that is allergist recommended and USDA certified organic.

Be proactive about early peanut introduction!

 


 
 
 

Hello, Peanut!™ was created by an allergist who wanted to offer parents a simple solution to peanut introduction.  This guided system removes the question many parents face, "How should I introduce my baby to peanuts?" Until now, there has not been an easy way to introduce babies to peanuts, and parents have been left with minimal guidance.

The Hello, Peanut!™  system is the solution. 

Made of an all-natural USDA certified organic blend of peanut and sprouted oats, the Hello, Peanut! system is comprised of the Introduction Kit and the Maintenance Kit. The Introduction Kit includes seven packets that are mixed into stage one foods over the course of seven days.  The amount of peanut in each packet gradually increases each day. The Maintenance Kit includes packets which are recommended for use up to three times weekly.

Hello, Peanut!™ offers parents a way to introduce babies to peanuts early, and allows for continued consumption which is recommended by scientific studies and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Hello, Peanut!™ is an innovative food product that offers parents peace of mind when it comes to babies and peanut introduction.

Our Story

Our Story


 

 

Concerned parents frequently ask their pediatricians and allergists how to introduce peanuts to their infants.  Unfortunately, there has only been vague guidance.

After attending numerous conferences and symposiums concerning many aspects of peanut allergies, one allergist had a novel idea…

Introducing

Hello, Peanut!™ 

Hello, Peanut!™ is a system modeled after scientifically designed food challenge and desensitization protocols used in allergists’ offices and academic institutions nationwide.

Hello, Peanut™ enables parents to easily and gradually introduce small amounts of peanut to their infant, as early as five months of age, over the course of seven days.  It is designed to be mixed into first stage foods, and thus can be presented much earlier than other peanut products.  After the introductory week, the Hello, Peanut!™ maintenance packets are recommended for infants until they can eat peanut in spread or whole form.

Hello, Peanut!™ is geared toward the general infant population without diagnosed food allergies or eczema. It is not designed to treat or cure any form of food allergy.

FAQ

FAQ


1. How much peanut is in each packet?

The Introduction Kit contains 8 packets.  The first day’s packet contains 200mg of peanut.  Each consecutive day gradually increases the amount of peanut your infant consumes. A maintenance packet which contains 2000mg, has the most amount of peanut. One peanut weighs approximately 600mg.  

2. Why are oat flakes listed as an ingredient?

Each packet includes a small amount of oat.  This ingredient helps the peanut blend more smoothly into your baby’s meal.   Also, while many older children and adults love the taste of peanut, this flavor can be strong for some babies. The oats help to neutralize the peanut flavor.  

3. How much food should I mix each packet into? 

As much as you’d like as long as you feel your infant will consume most if not all of it.  A serving of yogurt or apple sauce, a mashed banana or about a third of a cup of prepared infant oatmeal are some examples of meals and amounts parents have mixed the packets into.

4. What if my infant doesn’t finish the meal?

Discard the leftovers and use the next packet the following day.

5. My infant successfully completed Day One through Day Seven, what’s the Maintenance (green) packet for?  

The Introduction Kit contains seven blue introductory packets which are labeled Day One through Day Seven as well as one green Maintenance packet. Maintenance Kits, containing eight green packets, are sold separately.  Maintenance packets are recommended for use up to 3 times weekly, until your infant can eat peanut in spread or whole form.  The Maintenance packet should be used for the first time one week after your infant finishes the Day Seven introduction packet. 

6. Why do you recommend use of the Maintenance packets 1-3 times per week?

Our product is modeled after validated scientific studies. Studies have recommended early introduction of peanut and continued consumption of peanut, a few times weekly, to help prevent a child from developing a peanut allergy (see medical literature & news section).

7. Why are there increasing amounts of peanut each day?

Our product is modeled after oral food challenges performed in board certified allergist offices nationwide.  Oral food challenges begin with small amounts of food and increase gradually throughout the course of the challenge.

8. What is an oral food challenge?

An oral food challenge is a highly accurate diagnostic test used to diagnose a suspected food allergy.  During the food challenge, the allergist administers the suspected food to the patient in measured doses, starting with very small amounts that are unlikely to trigger symptoms. Following each administration or dose, the patient is observed for a period of time for any signs of a reaction. If there are no symptoms, the patient will gradually receive increasingly larger doses. If the patient shows any signs of a reaction, the food challenge is discontinued. With this regimen, most reactions are mild, such as flushing or hives, and severe reactions are uncommon.

9. What should I do if I suspect my infant is having a reaction to peanut?

Stop feeding your infant and consult with your pediatrician.

10. Can I use this product if my infant has been diagnosed with a peanut allergy?

No. The Hello, Peanut!™ system is not intended for use by individuals with a known peanut allergy.  The Hello, Peanut!™ system is intended for the general population without a history of food allergies or eczema.

11.  Can I use this product if I think my infant may have a peanut allergy and/or can I use the product to diagnose a peanut allergy?

No.  This product is a guided peanut introduction kit for infants who have never had peanut before.   If you suspect your infant has a peanut allergy and/or you want to diagnose a peanut allergy, speak to your pediatrician or an allergy specialist.

12. Can I use this product if my child has other food allergies, eczema or is high risk for food allergies?

Infants who have other food allergies, eczema or are high risk for food allergies should consult with their pediatrician before using our product.  It may be helpful to get evaluated by an allergist if your child has been diagnosed with food allergies and/or eczema.

Hello, Peanut!™ is FDA registered and is pending FDA approval for a qualified health claim on preventing peanut allergies in infants and young children.
