Food Allergies: Your Baby’s Risk and How to Reduce It is open to everyone, both LWC and non-LWC clients. Please feel free to spread the word! 

Food allergies now affect 1 in 13 children, upending many lives, social events, and customs. Learn from a researcher who unfortunately found out the hard way with her first son what you should be looking for and steps you can take to reduce your baby’s risks. We will discuss:

  • The early signs of possible allergies
  • Risk factors
  • How food allergies develop and why
  • What foods should be introduced and when
  • Maternal diet and breastfeeding
  • Questions to ask your pediatrician

We will simplify the literature helping you discern “old wives’ tales” from what is actually proven.

Join us for this incredibly important and informative presentation! There will also be plenty of time for Q & A.

“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”

Food Allergies: Your Baby’s Risk and How to Reduce It will be taught by Meenal Lele. Meenal has over a decade of experience in clinical research, and holds a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and a degree from the Wharton School. When her first son was identified as having multiple food allergies, she began digging into how this could happen in a family with no history of food allergies. With her second son, she had the chance to implement new science to help him avoid the same fate. Meenal has since started a company, Lil Mixins, which helps parents follow the latest guidelines on food allergy prevention with simple, affordable solutions for early introduction.
