Allergy Awareness Week Giveaway! Win an Orgran Hamper!

1 in 10 Babies will be born with a food allergy - Paint 1 fingernail to raise awareness during Allergy Awareness Week

1 in 10 babies born today will have a food allergy.

And no, it's not a fad - they're not being pedantic. Food allergies can be a matter of life or death - and for the luckier ones, it can be the difference between being well or seriously ill.

Food allergies affect 1 in 10 infants and about 2 in 100 adults. Some children outgrow their food allergies - but for many, it's something they have to deal with for their entire life. The most common triggers in childhood are egg, milk, peanut and tree nuts - and other common allergies include fish, shellfish, sesame, soy and wheat.

Having nannied in the past, I know how important it is to be allergy aware. As a coeliac - I know how important it is for others to be allergy aware. You might not have an allergy - but that doesn't mean you shouldn't know about them - you need to be aware of others

Next week is allergy awareness week and Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia is challenging us all to raise awareness by painting just one fingernail for those one in ten with allergies. 

But I want to raise awareness too - and for that, I'm sharing the allergy friendly love with an Orgran Giveaway of all of my favourite products! Orgran is incredibly allergy aware - with all of their products gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, yeast free and egg free.
