Sassy Mama Asks the Experts: Food Allergies in Kids and Babies

WellnessPost Category - WellnessWellness - Post Category - HealthHealth

Once a month Sassy Mama Asks The Experts your questions. Here, Eve Persak, MS RDN CNSC CSSD Nutritionist covers the FAQs that you, our readers posed to us regarding food allergies in kids

Eve Persak, MS RDN CNSC CSSD Nutritionist of Como Hotels and Resorts takes us through all your key concerns on food allergies in kids and babies. We look at what the likelihood of your child having a food allergy is if one parent already has an allergy; what you can do while your baby is still in your womb to help reduce the risk of allergies; and what probiotics or supplements are recommended.

We also let you know about the key symptoms of food allergies and when they present. We look at the latest research of when to introduce “allergy foods” like peanuts to your baby, and discuss whether or not your child can grow out of a food allergy.
