A study tracked children from infancy till seven years of age. These children were given hypoallergenic formula milk after they had stopped feeding on breast milk.  Allergy tests were done at 12, 24 months and again at seven years.

 

The study revealed that hypoallergenic formula milk did not make much of a difference as compared to normal cow's milk based formula in reducing allergies like asthma, eczema or hay fever in children.
