The Allergy Focused History

This involves the gathering of information through questioning about the symptoms and atopic history of the child, the foods habitually consumed and those that trigger a reaction, when/if complementary feeding has started, and other relevant information.2

It is also important to look at the child’s nutritional status (and growth pattern) and to determine if there is a family history of atopic disease - as the risk for allergy may be higher when atopic disease runs in a family.

All children with a suspected food allergy should be referred for an assessment of their nutritional adequacy.2
