Nip Allergies in the Bub - Food Allergy Prevention Project

NipBub Launch24 June 2019

Today the National Allergy Strategy has launched the national roll out of the Food Allergy Prevention Project funded by the Australian Government. The project aims to implement the ASCIA guidelines for infant feeding and allergy prevention.

The Nip Allergies in the Bub website  (www.preventallergies.org.au) has been developed as part of the Food Allergy Prevention Project and this website along with other resources have been piloted over the past year in Western Australia. Feedback about the resources has been collected and improvements made to the resources where required.

Alongside the 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 roll-out, education sessions for general practitioners have been provided in most states.

National Allergy Strategy Rationale

Allergic diseases have become an increasingly important chronic disease and public health issue in Australia and other developed countries over the last two decades, contributing to increased demand for medical services, significant economic cost of care and reduced quality of life of people with allergic diseases and their carers.
