Is your kindy-bound kid toilet ready?
'Big' school is just around the corner for thousands of children across Australia. Yet, many of these kids will be heading to school with the additional worry of not being fully toilet trained – whether that is daytime accidents, or wetting the bed, or both.

One in five primary-aged children will wet themselves during the day (Sureshkumar et. al 2000) and 10 per cent of five year olds still wet the bed at night.

So, what can you do as parents to address the problem before the first day of school arrives?
Preventing allergies in children
Having a child with an allergy is a genuine worry for parents, and is something that seems to be on the rise. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a 50 per cent increase in food allergies in children from 1997 to 2011, the most common food allergens being peanuts, eggs and milk.

However, a recent study by Imperial College London (ICL) discovered that children who are exposed to these allergenic foods early have a reduced risk of developing an allergy later in life.
