10 Food Allergens Kids Need To Avoid

Sometimes it is easier to give in to your kids and let them eat whatever they want for the sake of getting some sort of nutrition in them. But some of your child’s favorite foods might be causing them more harm than good. Even if your child does not have any diagnosed food allergies, you can improve his or her behavior, skin, and overall health by avoiding certain foods. Here are ten food allergies your child is better off avoiding.

Shellfish and fish are biologically different, so a child with a shellfish allergy might do just fine with fish. A shellfish allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to a protein found in shellfish such as shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, oysters, or squid. If your child has been diagnosed with a shellfish allergy, they may experience a reaction when they eat shellfish or even breathe it in. Keep ephedrine on hand for emergency situations.
