Food allergy rates are increasing every year, with almost 8% of children suffering globally, with prevalence rates varying significantly from country to country (1-10%). Even so, diagnosis of food allergy may take months to confirm. In the meanwhile, the child (and his/her parents) continues to experience distress and discomfort.

Children who develop food allergies may also develop other atopic conditions (atopic march). Delays in diagnosis and associated delays in initiating management strategies may make this more likely
