How do you know a baby is lactose intolerant?

About one in 10 babies in Australia have a food allergy. Know what is recommended when introducing solid foods to reduce the chance of your baby developing a food allergy.

Food allergies affect about 10% of babies up to 12 months of age in Australia1. Most children outgrow their childhood allergies over time, although there are a few who persist for life.

Evidence shows that introducing solids to your baby at the right time can help reduce the chances of them developing an allergy. Some infants will still develop an allergy to foods, so it’s also important to recognize the signs and symptoms of food allergy and to know when to get help. Left untreated, some food allergies can be life-threatening.
