Tips Tuesday!

Don't go nuts while pregnant or nursing! As new mom Kourtney Kardashian can attest, infant allergies can be very scary for both mommy and baby and are relatively common. In fact by age two, approximately six percent of children may develop a food allergy and for infants with a family history of allergies, the likelihood of developing an allergy may be two or three times greater. Therefore, all expectant mothers and new moms should be made aware of the seriousness of food allergies.

The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) and the American College of Allergy, Ashtma & Immunolgy (ACAAI) are great recources for prenatal education about the basics and prevention of food allergies. Tips such as " refrain from eating peanuts through the duration of pregnancy and breastfeeding to avoid introducing peanut proteins to (your) offspring"and "a nursing mother should avoid eating other foods that a baby is commonly allergic to such as eggs and cows' milk" are all available on their sites.

Since this is tip Tuesday here are some helpful hints for dealing with food allergies:

Carefully check all ingredient labels
Learn other names of the food responsible for the allergy
Exercise caution when eating out because restaurant staff is not always aware of specific ingredients or how food is prepared

For more information regarding food allergies, we recommend checking out the "Preventing or Delaying the Onset of Food Allergies in Infants" brochure at, contacting FAAN at (800) 929-4040 or you can visit the at or call them at their toll free number (800) 842-7777.

  1. This is great! I had no idea the FAAN was recommending the avoidance of nuts during pregnancy! Our son has severe food allergies (including nuts) and even had awful eczema associated with so many food intolerances too. It has been along and hard road of trying to figure this all out but thankfully, his Belly Boost probiotics have really helped him. They have been an answer to our prayers bc now he can not only eat more, but his skin looks so much better. He does still have allergies and we carry an Epi-Pen and read every single label TWICE! Great tips!

    more useful than ever before.
