The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that around eight percent of U.S. kids are affected by food allergies.
Eight foods account for most children's food allergies: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, nuts, and wheat. Strawberries and tomatoes can also cause food allergies in young kids, though generally not in adults.
Type and severity of allergy symptoms in kids vary, but may show up as itchy eyes, nose or throat, trouble breathing, gastrointestinal
upset, or hives.
If you suspect your child may have a food allergy, keep a food journal of everything he or she eats (including beverages) for a week to show your pediatrician. To confirm the diagnosis, your doctor may scratch the skin with a small amount of an allergen to observe the reaction.
