Titus Theseira, via facebook asked:
What can mums do to reduce the chances of their children having allergies?
Pam - Thatís difficult to answer. I donít know if heís asking about breast feeding, but breast feeding is thought to protect against allergy. We donít know when the right time to wean is, and thereís a lot of research going on at the moment to look and see whether early introduction of food might actually be better, and reduce the incidence of food allergy rather than late weaning.
