Eat a wide variety of food.
It’s important to expose kids of all ages to the same novel foods adults eat, and avoid unnecessary dietary restrictions. That means saying no to frozen dinosaur chicken nuggets and yes to the wider range of proteins like fish. Also, you can never get enough fruits, veggies, and whole grains. These are rich in antioxidants and fiber and can help kids develop a stronger digestive tract and acquire a taste for real foods. A diet lacking in fiber can lead to impaired production of T cells in the gut, which leads to the development of an immune system more vulnerable to food allergies.Back to top
