Health Tip: Food Sensitivities in Infants

Introduce new foods one at a time

(HealthDay News) -- Because some infants have sensitivities or allergies to certain foods, the Children's Hospital in Richmond, Va., suggests you choose single-ingredient infant cereals and plain fruits and vegetables until you know what your child can tolerate.

And introduce new foods one at a time and wait three to five days in between each new food.

Food sensitivities can manifest themselves in several ways. Your child may develop a rash, wheezing, diarrhea or vomiting.

But before you blame food for your infant's ailments, have your pediatrician rule out other possible causes.
