Webinar: Nutrition, Food Allergy & Eczema - 27 October 2021

Nutrition, food allergy and eczema

Join us on Wednesday 27 October for an information session about dietary management of babies and children with eczema. 

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, affects 1 in 5 children under 2 years of age. Many often wonder whether diet affects their child’s eczema, and if so, what can be done to help with day to day management.

Join Accredited Practicing Dietitian Ingrid Roche, as she shares information on dietary management of eczema in babies and children. In this webinar, Ingrid will cover:

  • Is it food allergy, eczema, or both?
  • Should I stop eating certain foods if I am breastfeeding and my baby has eczema?
  • Should I exclude foods to manage my child’s eczema?
  • Will removing foods affect my child’s growth and development?

Where do I get help?

There will be an opportunity to ask Ingrid questions after her presentation. The webinar will be recorded and put on our website after the event.
