Gluten when?


The European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) Committee recommended avoidance of both early (< 4 mo) and late (> 7 mo) introduction of gluten and introduction of small amounts of gluten gradually while the child is still breastfed. This temporary window allows the possibility of modulating the mucosal immune response, with progressively decreasing breastfeeding and maturation of the gastro-intestinal system.
