Food Allergies

Is what you are eating giving you nasty side effects? Besides putting on weight, of course 😉

According to the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, 1 in 20 children and about 2 in 100 adults are allergic to some type of food. The most common foods that cause allergic reactions include: peanuts, eggs, cow’s milk, and shellfish.

An allergic reaction could be in the form of hives, swelling of the lips/eyes/face, vomiting, or wheezing. However, sometimes less obvious symptoms can occur, like reflux, eczema, and chronic diarrhoea.

If you suspect an allergy in yourself or your child, it’s important to seek medical advice to identify the possible causes.
