Find Out What Foods Your Kids Are Allergic To

Did you know there are approximately 170 different food items that have been reported to cause allergic reactions? The more common foods are eggs, fish, gluten/wheat, milk, certain nuts (like peanuts and tree nuts), soy, and crustacean shellfish. According to FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education), there are about 15 million Americans with food allergies, of which nearly 6 million are children. Of those 6 million children, a third of them are allergic to more than one food item.

With so many possible food allergens, it can be difficult to find out what is causing your child problems.
