Children with Food Allergies
According to Misrad Hachinuch (Ministry of Education),Israel currently has 200-300 children with serious food allergies studying in the elementary school system. The most common food allergies among Israeli children are milk, eggs, peanuts, soy, sesame, walnuts and fish.
Tipat Chalav is a system of clinics that provide community public health services, primarily to infants and toddlers (well-baby clinics). The Tipot Chalav are administered by district health offices (Lishkat Briut Ezorit) and are staffed mainly by public health nurses. Additional staff include physicians, dieticians, health consultants and social workers.
Childhood Vaccinations, Flu Shots
Childhood Chisunim are given at Tipat Chalav (well-baby clinics) and in school. If your child is born in Israel, you will receive a Pinkas Chisunim (vaccination booklet) when the baby is born, before you leave the hospital. If your child is born abroad, a Pinkas Chisunim will be issued at your first Tipat Chalav visit.
