New ASCIA Guide for Milk Substitutes in Cow's Milk Allergy
15 June 2020:
Breastfeeding is recommended for the multiple benefits it brings to both the mother and child. If breastfeeding is not possible, the new ASCIA Guide for Milk Substitutes in Cow's Milk Allergy can assist health professionals in recommending substitute milks when an infant has cow’s milk allergy. This document also provides guidance about safe, nutritionally equivalent alternatives if a particular specialised formula is not available due to supply issues.
This guide has been prepared and reviewed by the ASCIA dietitians and paediatric committees, and is now on the ASCIA website: www.allergy.org.au/hp/papers/guide-for-milk-substitutes-cows-milk-allergy
Information for patients about cow’s milk allergy is also available on the ASCIA website:
