Allergies to foods continue to be on the rise and
according to the medical research community  the most
common causes of severe anaphylactic reactions
continues to be due to peanuts, milk, eggs, soy,
seafood and wheat.

It is possible for a child to be allergic to just about any
food, but a short list of foods accounts for the vast
majority of allergies. The most common food allergies in
children, and the estimated percent of children who have
them, are:

Milk (2.5%)
Eggs (1.5%)
Peanuts (1.4%)
Tree nuts (1.1%)
Wheat (0.4%),
Soy (0.4%)
Fish (0.1%)
Shellfish (0.1%)
Sesame (0.1%)

Milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, and
shellfish are often referred to as the “Big Eight” of food
allergies, accounting for 50 percent of all serious
reactions to food.  Sesame allergy seems to be
becoming more common in the United States.

The most common food allergens outside of the United
States are often different foods.  One study of children
in Taipei found the top allergen to be crab.  Children in
Israel have higher rates of sesame allergy than children
in the United States.  Children in UK have higher rates
of walnuts allergy than children in the US.
