For development of Ready, Set, Food! helped an all-star team of physicians, and advised by leading experts in allergy research
Ready, Set, Food! is a daily supplement that gently introduces your baby to peanut, egg, and milk, the three most common childhood food allergens. Studies have shown that this approach helps reduce the risk of developing allergies by up to 80%, and our system makes it easy. Simply add a packet of Ready, Set, Food! to your baby’s breast milk, formula, or food starting between 4-11 months of age, and continue for 6 months or until your baby is eating these foods regularly in their diet.
In May 2018 Ready, Set, Food! was founded by Daniel Zakowski and Dr. Andrew Leitner. The reason for this was Dr. Leitner’s son and Zakowski’s nephew, Abe, suffered an allergic reaction to peanut butter.
They learned that Abe was also allergic to eggs and dairy, after further testing.
