In brief: No

The condition of being allergic is certainly an inherited property.
Often, that tendancy is greater in children whose biological mother has allergies. However, specific allergy is generally not thought to be inherited. That is, a parent can be allergic to food, and their children allergic to pollen or insect stings.
