In brief: Doesn't inherit urs
Your kids may inherit a tendency but not the specific allergies.
A way to monitor food issues is to keep a food calender with each child as you introduce them.If you list any associated events:diarrhea, hives, vomiting, etc for the 3-4 days after a new food you can have a record of possible reactions.If the listed event occurs any time you use a food, allergy or not, you might want to avoid them.
