Brief description Food allergy appears to represent a second epidemic of allergic disease. It is not known why some children grow out of their food allergy or how food allergy in the first year of life impacts asthma and allergy in later childhood. HealthNuts is a large study of 5300 children that can answer these questions. HealthNuts visited children at ages 1, 4 and 6 and requests funding to re-visit them at age 10. Results will help prevent children developing food allergy, asthma and the allergic march.
