At what age do symptoms of food allergies or intolerances occur?

A food intolerance or allergy can occur at any age, can be short-term or a lifelong condition. If not identified early food intolerance symptoms can lead to more serious problems in later life: for example, colitis in a child that is caused by lactose intolerance can lead to Crohn's disease in adulthood.
