Food Allergy Awareness Week
23 May 2021 to 29 May 2021

Australia has one of the highest reported incidences of food allergies in the world, and the numbers are growing at an alarming rate. In fact, one in 10 babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy.

An allergic reaction can quickly become life threatening and people can die from food allergy. While the risk cannot be removed, it can be managed.

It’s up to all of us to be allergy aware – to know how to minimise the risk of a reaction, to know what to do if a reaction happens, and to understand and support family, friends and colleagues living with food allergies.
