Annabel & Consultant Paediatric Allergist Dr Adam Fox explains all there is to know about food allergies in this Q&A video series.
Childhood food allergies seem to be on the increase, so it’s natural that you might be nervous about introducing foods that could cause problems.
However, it’s worth noting that the actual incidence of food allergy in babies is very small – about 6%. Many babies grow out of allergies like cow’s milk allergy by the age of two or three. Food allergies are more common among babies and children from families with a history of food allergy.
