Why did he go for testing in the first place? I think it depends. My son was tested at 4 mths before he ever even had any food - due to severe ezcema - so I eliminated all the culprits from my diet since I was BFing. And I never gave him any of the foods - unless it was by accident/cross contamination. So in my case, yes, I eliminated foods without any obvious reactions b/c he never actually had the foods before. But later on when he did get the skin test, he did have reactions.
Is she 100% sure he's never had reactions to those particular foods? If he definitely has not had reactions to the foods, I would either ask for a food challenge at the allergist to make sure or eliminate all the foods temporarily and reintroduce them slowly to make sure there is no reaction/allergy.
I hope what I said made sense. I think I was rambling a bit....
