It's Monday, which means it's time to take a look at what has been happening health-wise over the past week on Twitter. 

The blog written by Alexa Baracaia (aka Allergy Mum UK) provides an informative resource for parents trying to navigate the tricky world of raising a child diagnosed with food allergies. As co-founder of #allergyhour, a Twitter chat which takes place on Thursdays at 8.30pm, she's also set up a handy Christmas-themed Pinterest board. Alexa shared the board on Monday so that it can act as a point of reference for allergy-safe festive treats. If you know a suitable recipe to add to the board, you can tweet her or use the #allergyhour hashtag.
