Thank you.
Do you find that many of the families resist food re-introduction?
How does an MDT approach specifically assist with food reintroduction?

Hi David, Thanks for the question. There are some families that are resistant to reintroduction but on the whole we have managed to support most families to do some (if not all) reintroductions. We have worked closely with the psychology service in some cases to help families overcome anxieties associated with reintroduction. We also found that using SPT to show there was no risk of immediate allergy was very helpful to build confidence.
