NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s a bit of relief for families with children suffering from a peanut allergy.

The FDA has approved the first treatment for kids ages 4-17 called Palforzia.

Children swallow a peanut powder daily, starting off in tiny doses, then gradually increasing it.

It trains their bodies to tolerate peanuts, although they should still not consume the food.

It’s not a cure, but doctors say it could be a game-changer.
