Did you know that in Australia, 1 in 10 babies, and 1 in 20 children now have a food allergy.
There are 9 foods that account for 90% of allergic reactions: egg, milk, peanut, tree nuts (eg. walnuts, almonds), sesame, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish.
Currently there is no cure for food allergy. Avoidance of the food is the only way to prevent allergic reactions.
Some children will experience life-threatening, allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.
Anaphylaxis must ALWAYS be treated as a medical emergency.
