Cow’s Milk Allergy Affects Child Growth

Parent Interventions

Children who are allergic to cow's milk weigh less and are smaller compared to peers who have allergies to pea nuts and tree nuts. Such children with persistent cow's milk allergy may not reach their full growth potential, according to Karen A Robbins of Children's National Hospital. The study was based on observations of 191 children from November 1994 to March 2015. Among the children surveyed, 111 had cow's milk allergies and 90 with nut allergies. Those with Cow's milk allergies were shorter in height and weighed less.
