Soon after my first child was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, new research upended decades of allergy advice. The LEAP study found that consistently adding allergenic foods beginning at four months of age could drastically reduce the rate of developing food allergies. The American Academy of Pediatrics subsequently began recommending that parents give allergenic foods to their babies early and often.
As I struggled to prepare allergens three times a week for my second child, I realized how hard it was to mix nuts into baby food without exposing his older brother or contaminating the blender. There had to be a better way! I took my background in chemical engineering and worked with food scientists to develop a solution.
Lil Mixins is specially prepared to blend smoothly into breastmilk, formula, or baby foods, so it’s simple to give to infants. We use the best quality ingredients and no additives or sweeteners – the same way you would make it yourself, but without the mess. And we’ve made it so one jar of each product will last from early infancy until your baby can start to eat whole foods.
