1 in 10 babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy.
May 13 – 19th is Food Allergy Week.
So Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia is asking Aussies to paint one fingernail.
Show your support of kids with food allergies by painting one nail and make a donation to help educate Australians about the fact that food allergies are serious and can be a matter of life and death.
