This week is Food Allergy Week.
For people living with a food allergy, avoiding certain foods isn’t a matter of choice. For these individuals, eating certain foods can be life-threatening.
1 in 10 babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy before their first birthday.
It is important to remember that food allergies can develop at any age and many people remain undiagnosed or self -diagnosed.
Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia is calling on Australians to Be Aware and Show You Care this Food Allergy Week.
Helping Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia spread the word about the importance of understanding food allergy can help raise awareness and much needed funds for allergy education.
Awareness raising around food allergy and its management ultimately saves lives.
If you have been diagnosed with a food allergy
and are worried about your food options or food required, an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) can help.
To book an appointment with our Accredited Practising Dietitians here at Your Health Hub, please phone our reception at (03) 6122 0150
