I can’t believe it’s already time to start Enzo on solid foods- time sure does fly. It seems like just yesterday I was doing this with Piero and he’s now almost 3 years old!

We recently had Enzo’s 6 month pediatrician appointment and she gave us the go-ahead to begin his feeding journey. With my oldest son, Piero, I did a combination of purees and Baby Led Weaning, so that’s my plan this go around with Enzo as well. I feel most comfortable starting with baby oatmeal and other purees and then gradually introducing other foods from there.
For those that have been around for awhile may remember that my oldest son, Piero developed an egg allergy when he was 8 months old. He is almost 3 years old now and has since outgrown the allergy, thankfully. However, because of experiencing a food allergy with him and because food allergies have doubled over the last generation, I want to be more proactive with Enzo which is why I am so excited to be doing early allergen introduction with SpoonfulONE.
SpoonfulONE is a science-backed line of nutritional products that make early allergen introduction safe, easy, and convenient. With just one spoonful a day, you can provide gentle daily exposure to 16 foods that are most commonly associated with 90% of food allergies to help stop a food allergy before it starts.
“Introducing foods early isn’t just safe. It’s a tool for prevention.”
– Dr. Kari Nadeau, inventor and co-founder of SpoonfulONE
Each serving of SpoonfulONE is intentionally proportioned to be small and gentle enough for first feedings, but large enough to be recognized by the immune system. Feeding SpoonfulONE daily, from infancy through early childhood introduces diverse foods into your baby’s diet so they can grow up accustomed to them. The goal is for the immune system to recognize those 16 foods as just foods, not allergens.
What are the 16 foods associated with 90% of food allergies included in SpoonfulONE products?
Each SpoonfulONE product includes peanuts, milk, shellfish (shrimp), tree nuts (almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts), egg, fish (cod and salmon), grains (oats and wheat), soy, and sesame.
“I conducted research on hundreds of babies to determine the amount of each food protein in SpoonfulONE’s formulation. The data showed that the lowest amount studied – just 30 milligrams daily of each protein – was enough and was well tolerated. Babies don’t need to be fed large amounts. More important is to feed diverse allergens every day over months and years.”
-Dr. Kari Nadeau MD, PhD
With Enzo, I am starting with the SpoonfulONE Mix in’s which are great for babies ages 4-6 months. These products were all designed to be given to your baby early, often, and seamlessly. The Mix-in’s are super easy to use because they blend directly into any puree, smoothie, etc. I feel incredibly safe using this product because fewer than 0.003% of babies reported a mild reaction to SpoonfulONE and 2.5 million+ servings have been fed!
Parenting can be really hard sometimes, but SpoonfulONE makes feeding easy and takes a lot of the guesswork and stress out of a what can be a very scary moment for us parents!!
