Allergy Safe Foods

If you’re working with children who have allergies, are working to find out which foods are causing a child’s allergies, or are interested in eating more low-allergen foods, you’ll love this list of foods!

There are many hypoallergenic foods (meaning ‘low allergens’) that taste great and can be used to make all kinds of amazing recipes. Although these foods may not be 100% allergen free for all people, they are believed to be the ‘safest’ foods and the easiest to rule out as allergy inducers. These are also great starter foods for babies and toddlers!

For starter foods, it’s best to introduce one new food every week as allergy symptoms do not always appear immediately.

If you have any doubts about these foods, talk with your doctor!
