Egg Allergies Stickers

Egg Allergies Stickers

Food allergies in children are common and can be due to peanuts, other tree nuts (brazil, cashew, hazelnuts, almonds), fish, shellfish, eggs, wheat, milk, milk products, soy, seed and some fruits. Food allergies are more common in children under 5 years of age than in older children because young children may grow out of food allergies. The commonest food allergies are due to milk, egg and peanut. Peanut allergy is the most likely allergy to need availability of adrenaline. Other substances to which children can have a severe allergic reaction are drugs (especially antibiotics and vaccines), bees, other insect stings, and some plants. The most severe form of allergic reaction to any substance is anaphylaxis and effective immediate management requires adrenaline. Where a child is known to have a susceptibility to severe allergy or anaphylaxis to a particular food, have a “food free policy” for that particular food, e.g. a...

Have a safe waving point in Childcare

Have a safe waving point in Childcare

Separation anxiety in children is when children fear being parted from their parents or guardians. It’s common and normal among babies and toddlers. A very small number of preschoolers and school-age children develop a more serious form of the condition, called separation anxiety disorder. There are things you can do if you have a child with either of these issues. Identifying separation anxiety in children Separation anxiety reaches its peak in babies aged 14-18 months and typically decreases throughout early childhood. Stranger anxiety is similar to separation anxiety and involves wariness and distress in the presence of unfamiliar people. It can occur from 7-10 months and usually decreases after the child’s first birthday. These anxieties are a normal part of development, and are nothing to be concerned about. After all, these anxieties happen when children are becoming more mobile, so they make sense from a survival point of view. That...

Dangers of Leaving Children in Cars

Dangers of Leaving Children in Cars

Most parents and caregivers think that they would never make such a mistake -  sure, we often forget to pack at least one thing in our suitcase, but a child is super obvious, right? Unfortunately, our brains sometimes betray us in the most unthinkable ways. Busy schedules, sleep deprivation, changes in routine and simple misunderstandings can distract us much more easily than you think. The Hard Truths Every year in Australia, over 5000 children are rescued after being left unattended in a car. Adults generally understand on an anecdotal level that the temperature of a car will increase (particularly on a hot Summer's day), but it may not be commonly known that the temperature can more than double in minutes. Even if the windows are down, or the car is parked in the shade. Did you know that the body temperature of a child heats up three to five times...
