This Week is Food Allergy Week!
Nutritionist Melanie McGrice joins Nic on the show today to discuss how prevalent food allergies are and why it’s important to be aware of them.
One in ten Australian children have some sort of food allergy. In fact, food allergies are so prevalent in Australia we now have one of the highest incidences of food allergies in the entire world.
There is currently no cure for food allergies, hence the importance of being aware of allergens as severe reactions can have devastating effects. Restaurants and schools are now starting to implement stricter policies towards food containing allergens.
