A child is considered at risk of developing an allergy when a direct relative (mother, father, siblings) already has an allergy because the predisposition for an allergy is hereditary. At the moment, about 20 – 30% of babies are affected by allergies. Allergies can manifest in a variety of ways. Whether a baby actually develops an allergy depends on many factors. One factor is the nutrition in the baby’s first months.
Milk protein plays a crucial role in triggering allergies.
