More than 160 foods have been found to cause allergies. Approximately 6 percent of young children and 3 to 4 percent of adults in the United States have a food allergy.

 If your child has a food allergy, it's most likely to be to one or more of these.
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, wal­nuts, pecans)
  • Soybeans
  • Wheat
  • Fish
  • Shellfish (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp)
The list above may differ depending on the country you are in. However, in most cases (including Australia), the list above still remains the same. If you would like to read more about them, check out some reliable sources like this.

Note: If your baby has a strong family history or personal experience of eczema, food allergies or asthma, be more cautious, it may be the best to consult with your doctor before introducing especially foods with high risk of allergens. Also, ALWAYS READ PACKAGES well before consumption when you purchase any foods or drinks.  Additionally, after introducing any new food, wait at least three days before moving on to the next new food. That way, you can monitor for any reaction and know what's causing it.

Enjoy an allergy free and pain free day with your loved ones!
