If you can't eat certain foods due to allergies or intolerances, should you worry about missing nutrients?

Pediatric Gastroenterologist
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta

Absolutely. All of my patients work with a registered dietitian to ensure the missing nutrients from the eliminated food is supplied by other foods or dietary supplements. This is especially important when there are multiple allergies or when dairy is limited or eliminated because it is the best source of calcium in the diet.
