Children’s nutrition can play a powerful role in overall health — and many common childhood symptoms can be related to food sensitivity. One of the easiest ways to identify a potential food trigger is by keeping a diet diary.
Certain symptoms, including digestive discomfort, rashes, and chronic congestion can be triggered by food sensitivity. The most common food triggers include cow milk, soy, gluten, and eggs.
Track food intake throughout the week, noting any symptoms and scoring them on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most serious. By identifying and eliminating potential food triggers you may be able to help ease symptoms. Download your diet diary template and start tracking.
