Food allergy is common in children. An accurate diagnosis remains a key element in order to instigate an effective management plan. Traditional management strategies have relied on a reactive approach, with allergen avoidance, management of accidental ingestion and monitoring for resolution.

Active management of food allergies relies on strategies to prevent food allergy through early introduction of allergenic foods and anticipatory testing.

With an established food allergy diagnosis, active management through modifying the natural history, and risk management strategies can be instigated. This review will discuss each of these areas in turn.

Keywords: Food allergy, children, diagnosis, weaning, food allergy prevention, immunotherapy.
