The team found that found that 54 per cent of a sample group of one-year-olds were refrained from eating certain foods because their parents were convinced that such food items initiated an allergic reaction in them

However, only two to six per cent of the infants had food hypersensitivity that was clinically confirmed, the scientists' report in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
