How can I prevent food allergies?

ANSWER

Once you and your doctor figure out which foods you should avoid, stay away from them. However, it is important to maintain a healthy, nutritious diet. Ask your doctor to recommend foods that will provide the nutrients you need.

You should also be aware of the ingredients in processed foods. Be sure to read labels. A registered dietitian can help you learn how to read food labels to discover hidden sources of food allergens.
