Food Allergy Awareness Week, 13 to 19 May

Food Allergy Awareness Week promots awareness about food allergies and how to manage them.

Life threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) in children aged under five years old have increased fivefold over the last 10 years in Australia. There is no cure. Complete avoidance is the only way to prevent an allergic food reaction. Education and management is key.
