Good news for parents of children with food allergies! According to Health Day News, " Early new research offers some hopeful findings for parents of children with food allergies.One new study suggests that some children with hen egg allergies could safely consume such eggs if they are baked at a high enough temperature for a long enough time. What's more, investigators suggest that parents who start to incorporate such cooked eggs into their child's diet may actually help them develop a broader tolerance to eggs than by avoiding eggs altogether."

Well now this is very good news. I had no idea kids could outgrow food allergies. A friend of mine has a child with milk allergies and meal time is such a hassle for her. It will be great to know there is a chance she won't have to deal with this as an adult.
