What causes food allergies?

Food allergies happen when the immune system – the body’s defence against infection – mistakenly treats proteins found in food as a threat.  As a result, a number of chemicals are released. It’s these chemicals that cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Almost any food can cause an allergic reaction, but there are certain foods that are responsible for most food allergies.

In children, the foods that most commonly cause an allergic reaction are: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. 

As we all know eating a GOOD balanced diet is so beneficial for our overall health. It’s also vital for your foot health too. Some places will cater for any food allergies you may have.. Freddo in Italy for example provide; sugar free, gluten free and diary free ice cream. Tastes amazing too!
