Don’t hold back giving your kids potatoes or fish! Why you ask? Well according to a study published in 2010 issue of Pediatrics introducing food to your child late may increase their risk of food allergies.
The study which observed about 1000 children showed that the late introduction of food increased the chances that the child would be allergic to it by the time they were 5 years old.
The evidence that was the strongest was in foods such as eggs, oats, wheat, potatoes and fish.
We all know it can be difficult to get kids under five to eat much of anything, but trying your best to introduce them to all food groups would be for their benefit. Another thing that came out of the study was there was no direct link between a parent’s allergies and their child’s.
