Six percent of all toddlers and four percent of all adults are diagnosed with food allergies each year. For toddlers, a food allergy can be rough as the nutrients from several of the most common foods that cause allergies are a necessary part of a toddler’s diet. A parent of a toddler with one of these food allergies must find other ways to get the nutrients into the child’s diet.
If you suspect that your toddler has an allergy to a specific food, here is a list of the most common food allergens for toddlers. It may be a good idea to monitor your child’s intake of each ingredient to see if you can figure out which food to stay away from.
If your toddler seems to have a reaction to any of these foods, consult your paediatrician.
