What are some foods that frequently cause hives and allergic reactions?

There are several foods that classically cause allergic reactions, including peanuts, strawberries, eggs, foods containing gluten (a common wheat protein), milk, soy, kiwi and bananas. It's difficult to predict who will have a reaction to a particular food, and we typically recommend that parents introduce foods slowly to closely monitor for reactions to new foods. If there is a strong family history of an allergy to a particular food, it is possible your baby may have these as well.
