Are there any foods that toddlers can't eat or shouldn't eat because of the possibility of allergies?

Are there any foods that toddlers can't eat or shouldn't eat because of the possibility of allergies?

No: For every study suggesting that a food should be delayed, there's another showing that there is no reason to delay it.

For infants, toddlers and kids, should formula milk or any milk be limited? Normal food which v eat is preferable? Our doc told to limit milk? Reason?

Confusing question: Bovine milk in high quantities can cause small amounts of intestinal bleeding. Kids who develop an unhealthy pattern of excessive bovine milk consumption can become anemic enough to need a blood transfusion. Most recommend no > 16-20 oz/day, which seems well tolerated. Any food/formula consumed in excess of need can cause problems. You can work out the age related specifics with your doc. ...Read more

Is it normal for toddlers not to eat pretty much any solid food but just milk for 3 to 4 days during sore throat, cold, diarhea etc?

Is it normal for toddlers not to eat pretty much any solid food but just milk for 3 to 4 days during sore throat, cold, diarhea etc?

Yes, that can: Happen. If the child hasn't seen a doctor at this point in the illness, I would recommend you take him/her to see if there is anything that can be treated. The milk may exacerbate the diarrhea, but if not, it's a decent source of fluids. Keep trying, though, to give some solids for a little more nutrition. ...Read more
