5 ways to healthy lifestyle        


Treating and managing allergies can significantly improve children and families’ quality of life. Allergies can often be associated with other medical conditions such as asthma, sinusitis and skin conditions.

Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) specify that in Australia one in ten infants will have a food allergy and one in ten children will develop eczema.

The ASICA website has extensive evidence based information including fast fact sheets for families, information on parent support organisations and action plans for allergic reactions, anaphylaxis and eczema.
