Fish

Not all fish is bad for your APH but it is advised that fish should only be used with caution, APH’s are rumoured to struggle to digest fish but this has not been proven categorically what is known is that foods containing unnamed fish produces can contain shellfish, which has a high probability of causing an allergic reaction

This is what we learned recently after researching it and asking about feeding fish by people in America etc. we were told that salmon is the only really safe fish for APH’s and any of the larger fish are particularly harmful like Tuna. Sardines and Mackerel were also ok but as Omega 3 oils are available from other sources like flaxseed we don’t even need to risk our babies.

From a human perspective, allergy to fish affects about 1 in 200 people, while allergy to shellfish (for example, prawns and crabs) is more common, affecting about 1 in 100 people.
