Childhood allergies are on the rise and the specific allergens (foods the child is allergic to) can often be found by themselves or within foods. For example, if a child is allergic to eggs, he may not eat eggs or any foods containing eggs like baked goods, creamy salad dressings or some pastas. Finding hidden allergens is an important job and a caregiver’s most vital resource is the food label. 
 
Food labels are found on all packaged foods—from loaves of bread to dairy products to pasta sauce and beyond. In recent years, food labels have become easier to read and must clearly state if they contain or were made using equipment that is also used to process food containing eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soybeans, tree nuts or wheat.
 
 
Because it can be tricky to know the uncommon or alternate names for foods a child may be allergic to, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network has developed a guide on how to read food labels by allergen. Click here to learn more about reading labels.
