New Nip allergies in the Bub infant feeding videos
The National Allergy Strategy has developed a new series of short videos to help parents feed their babies the common allergy causing foods, as part of the Nip allergies in the Bub allergy prevention program.
Four videos have been developed (one for each stage of feeding development), which demonstrate how to prepare recipes taken from the Nip allergies in the Bub recipe booklet. One of the key recipes included in the first foods video is how to prepare a nut and seed mix, making sure the nuts and seeds are finely ground to prevent choking.

ReadSpeaker has also been added to the website to allow for content to be read aloud and/or translated into more than 20 languages.
The Nip allergies in the Bub allergy prevention program is based on ASCIA Guidelines for Infant Feeding and Allergy Prevention. A new Australian allergy prevention study shows that prevention measures, as outlined in the ASCIA Guidelines, are having a measurable impact on the population prevalence of food-related anaphylaxis presentations to hospital.
