NEW Nip allergies in the Bub resources

The National Allergy Strategy has developed new resources to help parents introduce the common allergy causing foods in the first year of life, to help prevent food allergies.

NIP BUB introducing common allergy causing foods

A new webpage featuring a new video, provides guidance on how to introduce the common allergy causing foods. The video includes the signs of readiness to help parents identify when their baby is ready for solid foods to be introduced.

Guidance is also provided about how to introduce the common allergy causing foods, with a focus on introducing one new common allergy causing food at a time - this will make it easier to identify the problem food if an allergic reaction occurs.

The National Allergy Council remains a partnership between ASCIA and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia and continues to implement the National Allergy Strategy.

National Allergy Strategy

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
