It’s Food Allergy Week, an initiative by Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia that aims to increase community awareness about food allergy in an effort to promote understanding and ultimately help protect those at risk.
Over half a million Aussies have a diagnosed food allergy and research shows this number is growing. It is vital that food handlers are aware of the 10 declared food allergies. Download our free poster to display in your kitchen.
With one in 10 children developing an allergy before their first birthday, Australia has one of the highest rates of food allergies in the world.
Whilst 90% of food allergic reactions are caused by 10 foods, there are more than 170 foods known to be triggers. Bananas, kiwi fruit, mustard and celery just to name a few.
