Allergies are increasingly an issue in Germany. Nutrition and the environment play an important role in prevention. Learn how you can positively influence both.

What is an allergy?

Allergies are the body's superior defense responses: the immune system reacts sensitively to substances that are absorbed through food, airways or skin.

20 to 30% of children in Germany are affected by allergies. If first-class family members (mother, father or sibling) are allergic persons, this can also mean an increased allergy risk for your baby.

But do not worry - your predisposition will be inherited, not the allergy itself. The future health of your baby will also be influenced by external factors, which you can have a positive impact on right from the start of your pregnancy.

This is why it is sensible to know the allergy risk of your baby early on. The quick test in the blue box on the right gives you an initial assessment

From pregnancy to breastfeeding

With a healthy diet and lifestyle, you can positively influence your child's immune system as early as the pregnancy.

A healthy immune system can prevent allergies. Did you know that the first 3 years of life are crucial for the formation of the body's immune defense?

If your baby has an increased allergy risk and you can not breastfeed it or not, a so-called HA-starter * is recommended. In contrast to a normal initial diet, especially in the first 4 to 6 months of life, it can prevent the onset of an allergy.

In addition, you can contribute to the prevention of allergies by taking care of the best possible environment at home. For example, For example mold-promoting indoor climate as well as tobacco smoke and ventilate regularly.

In addition, a domestic cat may increase the likelihood of a defensive reaction occurring in babies with an increased risk of allergy. The purchase of a cat is therefore not recommended for these children.
