Navigating Childhood Food Allergies

Whether mild or severe, caring for a child with food allergies is no walk in the park. There is the constant vigilance and careful meal planning, the endless hours pouring over food
labels and the dreaded role as the ‘fun police’ when your little one reaches for a slice of cake at a birthday party.

If your child has a confirmed or suspected food allergy, or you have an interest in supporting those with complex dietary neecls, join us at this free, family-friendly event in Rockhampton on Sunday 28 April.

Have your questions answered, get practical guidance on childhood food allergy management and feel more confident in your ability to support your child living with food allergies.
