Starting your baby on solid foods is an exciting new stage! All parents want the best for their baby as they grow. What babies and young children eat and drink is important for their health both now and in the future. The information in this new fact sheet from the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) is based on up-to-date scientific evidence and will help you get your baby’s eating habits off to a good start. It also includes advice for infants who have been diagnosed with food allergies or who are at high risk of food allergies (e.g. those with strong family history of food allergies).
A Registered Dietitan can provide individualised support and dietary counselling for families of children with feeding problems and children with food allergies. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
