Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could incorporating locally grown honey into my children's diet, help with their seasonal allergies?
Not at all: It is a common misconception that eating local honey helps allergies. Local honey contains pollen from local flowers. People generally have little exposure to and aren't allergic to flower pollen (except florists). Wind pollinated trees, grasses and weeds which release huge amounts of pollen cause most allergies. Eating pollen has no effect on allergies though holding pollen under the tongue may. ...Read more
