How To Use SpoonfulONE's Mix-ins - Early Allergen Feeding

August 02, 2021 3 min read

Pediatricians and the latest USDA Guidelines recommend introducing allergens starting between 4-6 months and keeping them in the baby's diet often. But we know it can be tough when it comes to actually getting these foods into your baby’s feeding routine

Commercially available baby foods don’t have all the right ingredients, and figuring out how to feed a diverse set of foods every day to infants can be downright challenging. That’s why at SpoonfulONE it is our mission to make it easy to accomplish diverse, common allergen feeding every day.

Designed to support consistent daily use, SpoonfulONE Mix-ins are the perfect complement to your little one’s favorite solids, easily mixing into purees or applesauce. All you need is one packet, once daily, for one year!

What Is In SpoonfulONE Mix-ins?

Every SpoonfulONE product has a purpose: to help train your baby's growing tummy and immune system to see food allergens as food and not dangerous. Created by a leading pediatric allergist, SpoonfulONE is based on landmark research as well as proprietary studies. 

The serving size of proteins found in every pack of SpoonfulONE is based on complete science and clinical research. Our founder, Dr. Kari Nadeu, discovered 30mg of every food protein was the right amount for safely training  babies' tummy.

With every bite, your little one will be exposed to a spoonful of 16 foods — small, precise amounts of peanuts, milk, shellfish (shrimp), tree nuts (almond, cashew, hazelnut, pecan, pistachio, and walnut), egg, fish (cod and salmon), grains (wheat and oat), soy, and sesame. 

How to Serve SpoonfulONE Mix-ins

It takes repeated dietary exposure over time to train your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods. SpoonfulONE Mix-ins should be used daily as part of a regular meal or snack time routine. Starting as early as 4-months-old, our Mix-ins are an ideal way to integrate all of the foods most commonly responsible for food allergies into your baby's diet.

Mix one packet into your child's favorite food or bottle and enjoy immediately. 

1. Mixed into food

Mix-ins are mild in flavor and a perfect complement to starter foods. Just mix into baby food, purees, smoothies, or any food your child enjoys from infancy through toddlerhood. Check out our recipes page for some delicious and nutritious ideas. 

2. Mixed with formula or breastmilk and bottle-fed

Mix-ins are perfect for bottles and can be enjoyed by babies 4+ months of age or older. Compatible with either formula or breastmilk, whatever your baby enjoys and supports your family’s feeding preferences. In order to have optimal flow and allow the Mix-in to spread evenly, we recommend a minimum of 4 oz of liquid.

Answering Your SpoonfulONE Mix-ins Questions

  • What if my child does not eat an entire packet in a feeding?

It's okay if your child cannot get through a packet of SpoonfulONE in one feeding when mixed into food. You can spread out the serving over two or more feedings throughout the day. However, each SpoonfulONE Mix-in pack that’s added to a bottle should be used and finished in one feeding.

  • Should my Mix-ins be clogging the nipple of my baby’s bottle?

Mix-ins are not intended to dissolve and may clog the nipple. This is normal as every serving includes proteins from 16 different foods. For optimal flow, shake vigorously throughout feeding and use a size 3 or larger/ fast flow nipple with your baby’s bottle.

  • Can my child have more than one serving a day?

It is always okay to feed more than one serving a day as SpoonfulONE is just food.
