Parents, last chance to participate in a study on introducing baked milk and/or egg. Plus, check out our mythbuster on whether it is safe to get a flu shot if you have an egg allergy.
Research: Parents – help researchers identify the best approach for introducing baked milk and/or egg into the diet
Last call to participate in an international study looking at baked milk and/or egg consumption by children after the successful completion of an oral food challenge. If you have already completed the survey, thank you!
An international study is looking at baked milk and/or egg consumption by children after the successful completion of an oral food challenge. This important study aims to understand the introduction of baked milk and/or egg into the diet, including in what form, quantity and frequency, and the educational needs to support continued feeding at home.
Take the survey
- To be eligible, your child must have a diagnosed milk and/or egg allergy and have successfully completed a baked challenge
- About 10-15 minutes is needed to complete each survey and all responses will remain anonymous
- Access the survey at https://redcap.link/bakedfoods
Why your participation matters
Your participation is vital to providing the researchers, and patient organizations like ours, with insight on the general comfort with baked foods and barriers to feeding baked egg and milk at home after a successful challenge.
The results of this survey will help to ensure we create meaningful tools and resources to help support families in keeping baked egg/milk in the diet, which ultimately can lead to a faster resolution of egg and milk allergies in children.
Mythbuster: If you have an egg allergy, is it safe to get a flu shot?
FACT: Yes, it is safe to get a flu shot if you have an egg allergy.
In the past, you may have been told not to get one because influenza vaccines (“flu shots”) contain a small amount of egg protein. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has advised that individuals with egg allergy may be vaccinated against influenza using any age-appropriate product (injectable or nasal spray vaccine), without a prior influenza vaccine skin test and with the full dose.
