If My Child Has An IgE-Mediated Food Allergy, Are There Other Foods That Should Be Avoided As A Precaution?

Question: If my child has an IgE-mediated food allergy, are there other foods that should be avoided as a precaution?

Answer: When introducing foods in a child that has a high risk for food allergies or has a preexisting food allergy, it's important to try to avoid introducing very allergenic foods, especially at a very young age.

It's important to not introduce solids before four months of age, to avoid introducing milk and milk containing products until after a year of age, to avoid introducing eggs and egg containing products until after two years of age and to avoid introducing nuts, both peanuts and tree nuts, until after three years of age.
