Six Foods That Cause Allergic Reactions In Children

food allergyIt has been determined that there are six foods that result in 90% of all food related allergic reactions in children!

These six foods when first tasted or ingested in a child’s lifetime, could result in a dire or adverse effect.

This is why, you have to monitor your child when he is trying any type of new food.

The six foods that cause allergic reactions in children are as follows:

  1. Milk
  2. Egg
  3. Wheat
  4. Soy
  5. Peanuts
  6. Tree Nuts (This include pecans and walnuts)

With many of these foods including eggs, milk, and soy, a child will simply “grow out of it.” On the other hand, a child who shows an allergy to nuts or any type of seafood will generally maintain that food allergy into adulthood.

How Do I Know If My Child Is Allergic To One Of The Six?

If your child shows any of the symptoms below, after ingesting one of the six food types listed above, you should seek medical attention immediately:

  1. Tightness in the chest or shortness of breath. This could be followed by a wheezing which sounds like a whistle when they are breathing.
  2. Hives, rashes, or flushing appears on the child’s skin.
  3. A runny nose, itching, nasal congestion, and sneezing can also all be signs of an allergic food reaction.
  4. If nausea, vomiting, cramps, or diarrhea occur then you should consult a physician immediately. This is also true of the swelling of the tongue, lips, or throat.
