In recent years, the number of children with food allergies has gone up dramatically. Of school aged children approximately 1 in 25 have food allergies according to a clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Not only have peanut allergies, tree nut allergies, and dairy allergies (milk allergies) increased but there are other foods that commonly cause an allergic reaction. The top eight also include soy, fish, shellfish, wheat, and eggs allergies. The danger from eating a food allergen is due to a reaction called anaphylaxis, which is severe and life threatening. Anaphylaxis symptoms can be varied and multiple, for example constricted airway and drop in blood pressure or hives and vomiting. All reactions can be sudden and unpredictable. These reactions result in over 9,500 hospitalizations per year.
