Food Challenges: Home

A home challenge would be considered for a child whose clinical presentation is thought not to have been due to the suspected food or whose food allergy is thought to have completely or partially resolved. This evaluation is made on analysis of the history and testing performed.

Information for parents/carers

Your child’s Allergy Team now considers it safe to offer (insert relevant food) at home with the aim of achieving normal portion size and frequency of a previously avoided food to the level of other family members never allergic to that food. If you are not certain you can do this, please discuss it with the Allergy Team.
