Increase in number of infants with cow milk allergy

11:23 am on 22 May 2009

Auckland University says there's been an increase in the number of infants with "cow's milk protein allergy".

Professor Rohan Ameratunga thinks the increase is a result of more parents being aware of allergies.

A new pilot study will be underway by August to look at how many children are affected and the impact on their growth and development.

The study is funded by the Auckland District Health Board.
