The Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) has developed ASCIA Infant Feeding Advice and information about Allergy Prevention in Children based on a systematic review of relevant published review papers and position statements. Where possible these documents state the level of evidence on which the recommendations are based, and this varies from meta-analysis of high quality randomised controlled trials to expert opinion.

The current ASCIA Infant Feeding Advice developed in 2010 is consistent with findings from recent studies, including the LEAP (Learning Early About Peanut Allergy) trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on 23 February 2015.

ASCIA intends to update these documents in 2016 to incorporate findings from studies and reviews that are due to be released in 2016.
