Patient Guidance for Infant Feeding: Solving the Mystery of Food Allergy Prevention for Dental Professionals
The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans include key messages that are relevant to the way in which we should be counseling dental patients regarding infant feeding as a way to prevent food allergy. The change in guidance has created uncertainity, confusion and fear among patients with regards to how and when to introduce allergens into a baby's diet. This course will provide practical advice you can share with your patients for food allergy prevention.
Upon completion of the online training, the participant should be able to:
-- Discuss the leading hypotheses for the rapid rise in childhood food allergy.
-- Formulate how to address the nutritional and oral needs in the pediatric food allergy community.

-- Discuss the current evidence-based food allergy prevention guidelines that can be integrated into individualized, comprehensive oral health care messages.
