Reintroduction of food allergens - achieving tolerance is more than a ladder

Heidi Ball is a Senior Specialist Dietitian with over 20 years of experience working with children with food allergy. At The Paediatric Allergy Conference 2023, Heidi spoke about the reintroduction of food allergens – achieving tolerance is more of a ladder.


Learning objectives:

  • To give an overview of reintroduction ladders and current practice
  • To discuss the factors that may affect the outcome of allergen tolerance (optimum age, quantity of allergen, food type, speed of progress, home or supervised)
  • To give an understanding of why some children fail to progress with allergen tolerance and how can we improve outcomes
