Country Vegetable Casserole with Chicken Stock
As corn is a fairly common allergen, you may wish to exclude it from this recipe.
Note that paediatricians recommend avoiding it during baby's first year. The risk of your baby having an allergic reaction to corn is higher if there is a family history of any type of allergy, including eczema and allergic rhinitis.
The symptoms of corn allergy in babies can be any of the typical food allergy symptoms, including (but rarely) anaphylactic shock. Corn allergy is different from corn intolerance: this is when your baby experiences digestive problems as a result of eating corn. Corn intolerance symptoms are generally less serious than those of corn allergy.
