Having a toddler is no joke. If it’s your first, you’re probably used to things like checking if they’re breathing like, a hundred times a day. You’re alarmed by every little thing, and concerned is an understatement. Even if you’re a seasoned parent, nothing is more plaguing than your baby having an issue with eating –let alone a food allergy.

Eating and sleeping are your toddler’s specialties, so if there’s anything abnormal happening with either, your instincts may be to panic and assume the worst. While you shouldn’t automatically jump to conclusions about your child having an allergy attack, it does assist peace of mind to have an idea of what you could be dealing with.

If you’re suspecting that your child may have an allergy to certain foods, there are a few ways to tell.

1. If They Experience Effects Following the Consumption of Any of These

Monitor your children’s physical standing after they consume any of these foods. The most common foods that provoke food allergies in children are:

  • Peanuts
  • Walnuts
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Cow milk
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish
  • Soy
  • Wheat

2. If You Notice Any of These Symptoms

  • Food allergies can arise as breathing, intestinal, cardiovascular, or skin reactions. Most food-related allergy symptoms occur with an hour or two of ingestion. Rarely, a delayed response may arise, such as eczema.
  • Stomach pain
  • Rash
  • Nausea
  • Hives
  • Wheezing
  • Sneezing
  • Vomiting
  • Peculiar taste in the mouth
  • Tightness in throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Diarrhea
  • Cough
  • Swelling
  • Itching

3. If a Sever Reaction is Indicated

A severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis requires immediate emergency assistance. Keep watch for these symptoms.

  • Chest pain
  • Fainting
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Turning blue
  • Weak pulse
  • Swelling of the mouth
  • Falling unconscious
  • Confusion

If you experience or suspect that your child may have an intolerance or allergy to certain foods, consulting with a pediatrician will help you to identify the best course of action.
