  • Ancestry was expressed in 10% increments.

  • a This model included potential confounders considered on the basis of literature reports (maternal atopy, cesarean section, firstborn status, and exclusive breastfeeding), irrespective of significance, and variables found to be potential confounders of the association of race with any food sensitization in our data (prenatal smoke exposure and maternal postnatal smoking).
