Lecture Overview

Over recent years there has been a significant increase in the prevalence of childhood food allergy in Australia. This presents a challenge to health professionals working with families of young children who may be on strictly controlled foods. As a result, this has the potential to impede long term good eating habits and cause incongruous behaviours associated with food.
