LIKELY NO...: The outcome of food allergy depends on what type of allergy; ie is it mediated by IgE or not. Most children will outgrow their food allergy especially if not mediated by IgE and in the absence of other disorders of allergy. I will like to recommend that if a food challenge is to be be attempted when your child is ready, that it should be done under the supervision of an allergist. Take care
