Instead of delaying peanut exposure in infancy, as earlier guidelines recommended, one should actively introduce peanut.The risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction is higher if a child eats peanut for the first time at around one year of age.

This will make it much easier to fly on planes where peanuts are served.
