Talking children and food allergies with Dr Neeta Patel, Consultant Paediatrician and Allergy Lead at the Whittington Hospital
Date recorded: 26th March 2021
Confused by the difference between a delayed and immediate food allergy? Wondering how on earth to wean a baby with a food allergy? Then this is the webinar for you.
Paediatric Consultant, Dr Neeta Patel is Allergy Lead at the Whittington Hospital in London and the allergy service she set up there sees over 1200 children a year. During this hour-long webinar hosted by The Allergy Team, Neeta takes questions from allergy parents with topics ranging from whether you can pass on allergens through breast milk to what exactly does mucus in stools look like…. no topic is off limits!
While much of the Q&A focuses on babies and young children, Neeta also discusses growing out of allergies and how to support children who feel anxious about their food allergies as they grow older and begin to take more responsibility for things like carrying medication. An allergy mum herself, Neeta’s clear explanations and fantastic breadth of knowledge make this webinar a goldmine of information, particularly for those starting out on their allergy journey.
