Nip Allergies in the Bub for food allergy prevention

3 July 2019

Last week the National Allergy Strategy launched the Nip Allergies in the Bub food allergy prevention project, which is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.

The Nip Allergies in the Bub website and other resources have been piloted over the past year in Western Australia. Feedback about the resources has been collected and improvements made, before the national launch.  As well as online resources, face to face education of general practitioners, child maternal health nurses and pharmacists has been provided to inform and support health professionals, in preparation for the national launch. 

The Nip Allergies in the Bub project aims to implement the ASCIA guidelines for infant feeding and allergy prevention, which can be found here:
