Food Allergy Week (FAW) Day 1!

Did you know that 1 in 10 Australian babies born today will develop food allergies? This is a dramatic increase from 10-15 years ago. Oliver is the 1 in 10. Without any warning, without a genetic history, without any other symptoms… Oliver had a near fatal anaphylactic reaction at the age of 7 months. Paint one nail to symbolise that 1 in 10 babies born today will develop food allergies… and at the same time it is a great conversation starter into what food allergies are all about and start making people more aware…

Read the FOOD ALLERGY WEEK 2014: BE AWARE. SHOW YOU CARE media release to learn more about how we can all become more aware…

Food Allergy Week 2014

Food Allergy Awareness Week is almost upon us… it’s a great time to educate, support and understand food allergies… Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia is an amazing website full of information and a wonderful support group as a go to when you don’t know where else to go…

 

Be safe this Easter

When living with multiple food allergies it is never worth taking the risk… find a product that you can trust and stick to it especially at these festive times of the year, even though we probably want more than anything to have an easy option and offer our special kids what every other child is having… it’s just not worth it…

This current story (April 10, 2014) and recall is a lesson that we can all learn from thankfully without a tragic ending…
