Causes Food Allergies in Children

  • Children having immature immune system are more likely to develop food allergies. Yes, babies born through vagina generally take probiotics from the birth canal but cesarean babies have higher odds of developing food allergies as they lack beneficial bacteria thus result in weak immune system.
  • Another common reason for development of food allergies is ‘leaky gut’. Leaky gut happens when undigested food particles cross the wall of gut and constantly stimulate immune system to launch a serious reaction.
  • Hereditary! Yes, it is well-known that food allergic reactions often run in families. If your parents or grandparents cannot tolerate certain foods then you are more susceptible to develop similar sensitivities.
  • An overly-sanitized environment means never exposing your child to germs may seem like a very good way to prevent illness but it is more likely to achieve the exact opposite result. Yes, living in sanitized and perfectly sealed environment weakens your child’s body’s ability to battle invaders.
  • The most common foods that cause food allergies in children include milk especially cow milk, peanuts, eggs, soy, shell fish, wheat, etc. Children who have past food allergy can outgrow the same reaction in future. If the child has other allergic reactions, then his/her risk of having food allergy is greater.
