More and more people are choosing to give up cow’s milk in favour of plant-based alternatives.
If you really think about it, drinking milk is a bit weird. We are the only mammals that drink the milk of another animal and choosing cows as our main source is somewhat arbitrary.
I’m not alone in thinking this – I heard the same argument presented by a leading paediatric gastroenterologist at this year’s Allergy Study Day at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

This is a fantastic book written by paediatric allergy specialists at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children (also known as Sick Kids). I start by saying that in case, like me, you don’t realise how good this book is when you first pick it up, or in case you don’t have the time to read this review till the end – I get it, I have a toddler.
I have to say, the first time I read The Complete Kid’s Allergy and Asthma Guide, I wasn’t enamoured by it but by the second time around, I had read several other books on allergies, asthma and eczema, and realised how much this one stands out from the rest.

After a particularly busy Spring followed by a hectic working holiday back to London where I attended an allergy course at the Royal Society of Medicine, I decided to take the summer off to focus on my family and just breathe.
