Miscellaneous recommendations

Gluten intolerance is not a real allergy, because the immune system is not involved in the reactions. The symptoms of so-called coeliac disease can, however, be just as serious. If there is intolerance to gluten, then a limitation to the choice of food is required, i.e. complete avoidance of varieties of grain and products that contain gluten.

The risk of developing coeliac disease can be reduced for the baby if you stick to the following rules:

    • no contact to gluten before the end of the 4th month!
    • first gluten given as of the 5th - 7th month (introduction of food supplements)
    • start with small amounts of grain that contains gluten, and then increase slowly
    • the best thing is to introduce gluten while you are still breastfeeding

Other food that should be avoided in the 1st year of life:

    • peanuts
    • soy
    • seafood
    • honey, sweets, chocolate
    • spices
    • salt
