Frequently Asked Questions

General

SpoonfulOne products were designed to be started in infancy and enjoyed through toddlerhood. Our Mix-ins were specially designed to be given to children starting as early as 4-months of age, once they have begun eating solid foods. As children grow, they can continue with our Mix-ins or try other formats like our Puffs (6+ months) and Oat Crackers (12+ months). Mix and match any of our products!

SpoonfulOne has a purpose: to help protect your baby from developing a food allergy.* Created by a leading pediatric allergist, SpoonfulOne is based on landmark research as well as proprietary studies. Designed specifically for the Food Allergy Protection Plan, each serving includes all of the food groups responsible for over 90% of food allergies. Each product includes a spoonful of our Foundational Food Blend—small, safe 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. With such precise portions, it takes repeated dietary exposure over time to safely allow your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods.

Feeding your baby SpoonfulOne each day, starting as early as 4-months-old and continuing through early childhood, helps train his or her tummy to accept food as food, rather than as an allergen. For consistency and convenience, SpoonfulOne is available in various forms to meet the growing needs of children. Our Mix-in is ideal for children, starting as early as 4-months-old. Then, once children are accustomed to chewing solid foods, our Strawberry and Banana Puffs are the perfect, on-the-go snack.  And for the Toddler, our Cocoa Chip, Blueberry and Vanilla crackers will continue to keep them on SpoonfulOne and keep the Parent worry free!

A food allergy prevention strategy requires starting before a food allergy develops. Research says that early and regular dietary exposure to a food may reduce the risk of a child developing an allergy to that food.* So, early is better than later. But, later is better than never. The most important consideration is starting before a child develops a food allergy, which can happen at any time as they grow up. SpoonfulOne is not for children who have been diagnosed with a food allergy.

SpoonfulOne helps to protect your child from developing a food allergy.* Over the last generation, food allergy rates have accellerated dramatically. In fact, 2 out of 3 children who develop a food allergy did not have a parent with a food allergy. Babies are not born with food allergies. They develop them over time. But leading research shows that early and regular dietary exposure to foods like peanut may reduce the risk of a child developing an allergy to that food. Each SpoonfulOne product includes a spoonful of our Foundational Food Blend—small, safe training portions 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. With such a precise formula, it takes repeated dietary exposure over time to safely allow your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods. Feeding your baby SpoonfulOne each day, starting as early as 4-months-old and continuing through early childhood, helps train his or her tummy to accept food as food, rather than as an allergen.

All SpoonfulOne products contain a spoonful of our proprietary Foundational Food Blend which covers all of the food groups responsible for over 90% of food allergies. Our Foundational Food Blend includes small, safe 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. With such precise portions, it takes repeated dietary exposure over time to safely allow your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods. Feeding your baby SpoonfulOne each day, starting as early as 4-months-old and continuing through early childhood, helps train his or her tummy to accept food as food, rather than as an allergen.

SpoonfulOne is made with precise portions, so it takes repeated dietary exposures over time to safely, and gently, allow your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods. Scientific studies, such as LEAP and EAT, showed that early, consistent dietary exposures for 3-5 years resulted in dramatic reductions in risk. As a result, both the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), recommend including a diverse range of foods, including potential allergens, as early as 4 months of age and continuing dietary exposure from infancy through childhood.

SpoonfulOne was designed to support consistent daily use: one packet, once daily, for one year. Our products are made with precise portions, so it takes repeated dietary exposures over time to safely, and gently, allow your baby’s immune system to grow up accustomed to a diverse range of foods. Miss a day here or there? As long as you resume SpoonfulOne and keep a consistent routine, you're doing great.

We've designed SpoonfulOne products to be stored at room temperature, so you can keep them wherever is most convenient for you: your kitchen counter, your pantry, or in your child’s diaper bag when you are on-the-go!

SpoonfulOne is manufactured responsibly in the United States in accordance with the FDA’s current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP), using quality U.S. and imported ingredients. We have developed proprietary manufacturing equipment and methodologies that allow us to ensure our products are free from microbial contamination while in parallel preserving the protein structure that is so critical to the value proposition of SpoonfulOne.

SpoonfulOne is regulated by the FDA as a food. All SpoonfulOne products carry the FDA-issued Qualified Health Claim for reducing the risk of developing a peanut allergy. We manufacture SpoonfulOne under FDA's current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).

SpoonfulOne should not be taken by a child who has already been diagnosed with a food allergy to any of the ingredients included in our product. At this time, we do not offer variations of SpoonfulOne with different ingredients. Each serving of our product contains the same ingredients of our Foundational Food Blend. Our goal is to create the most comprehensive and complete products by including the food groups most commonly responsible for food allergies. Only SpoonfulOne contains all of the food groups known to cause 90% of food allergies in every serving. Please consult your healthcare provider for questions about existing food allergies.

If you are breastfeeding, please continue to do so while incorporating SpoonfulOne into your daily child’s routine with solid foods. You don't have to wean your child off breastfeeding to start including SpoonfulOne. Research indicates that breastfeeding alone may not reduce the risk of food allergies, but should be encouraged and can co-exist with the inclusion of solid foods.

We recommend one pack of SpoonfulOne every day, for one year. Research showed that the ingredients in SpoonfulOne helped to keep healthy babies from developing allergy-triggering antibodies when fed consistently over the course of one year.

We developed SpoonfulOne to make it easy to include all of the most common food allergens in your baby’s diet. Each serving of SpoonfulOne includes the 9 food groups associated with over 90% of food allergies to help babies’ immune systems build tolerance over time.
