Foods to fight hay fever

Everyone loves Spring: longer days and a sense of renewal in fresh buds and floral displays. But Spring also marks the start of hay fever season – itchy eyes, sneezing and wheezing. Before you reach for the antihistamines for your residents, here are some food do’s and don’ts that could help beat the sniffles naturally.

Foods that can trigger or aggravate hay fever symptoms or allergic reactions fall into three main groups: Flower based foods, foods that contain mould or pollen based foods.


Foods that can alleviate hay fever symptoms are those which are naturally high in anti inflammatory or antihistamine properties.


When planning your Spring menus, other great foods to fight hay fever include onions, apples, broccoli, garlic, tomatoes, pineapple and kiwi.
