My daughter is allergic to eggs.....

1 answers
Just wondering if anybody else has a kid that is allergic to eggs also. Her pediatrician said that it is common and that some kids grow out of it by the time they are 5. She is 14 months. She can eat somethings like boxed pastas but not anything with fresh egg in it. So I wanted to know if your kids grew out of the allergy or if they still have it. I am really hoping she grows out of it.

I have a friend whose daughter has an egg allergy. Things that have cooked eggs are usually fine, especially baked goods since the egg proteins are changed during the baking process. But, she doesn't like to eat them because she can taste the egg. Their daughter just turned 2 and it seems like the allergy is getting better but as I said, at this point she just doesn't like things made with egg.A lot of kids do outgrow their egg allergy. It's pretty common and as kids get older their digestive system matures enough that they can break down the egg proteins. You'll just have to wait and see if this is what happens for your daughter. In the meantime, limit the amount of processed foods she eats. You can do some research on egg replacements for cooking and you can find egg-free recipes online. I made a great eggless strawberry cake for my friend's daughter that was super yummy.
