About the webinar:
Cow’s milk allergy (CMA) is one of the most common allergies in children across Australia and New Zealand. In our upcoming webinar, dietitians Dr Carina Venter, Marianne Tomlin and Jenny Douglas will explore a practical guide to CMA in young children. They’ll explore the presentation of CMA in children older than one year, impacts on growth and development and potential ‘watch outs’ for toddlers on an elimination diet. Plus, they will provide practical advice on using hypoallergenic formulas and ensuring the development of healthy taste preferences.
