Webinar: Milk allergy: How to manage it and what to consider from a dietary perspective
September 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Join us to learn about navigating milk allergy and how to address nutritional and other challenges posed by this priority food allergen. Milk can be an ingredient in many foods people may not expect like canned tuna, processed meats, and candy and can be tough to manage as a result.
What the webinar is about: The difference between milk allergy and lactose intolerance, the prevalence of milk allergy, and the possibility for outgrowing it. With this session, you’ll also gain a better understanding of managing milk allergy, preventing allergic reactions through the avoidance of milk and milk proteins, and the impact on the diet. You can submit your questions upon registration, this helps us know what you’re most interested in learning.
