Signs of food allergies

It’s important to recognise and detect signs of food allergies, because your baby can’t tell you if something’s wrong! Do observe your baby for about 1-2 days after a new food is introduced. Symptoms like breathing difficulties may occur within several hours or days after eating.

Please do not delete the post, this is a valid feedback and it is unethical to delete the post. If something is wrong , then rectify it and not delete the post and sweep it under Dear HPB Head of Departments, I am writing this email in regards to the above mentioned. I received an sms which states I am due to swab on the 05 Feb 2021 at 10.30am. I arrived at 9.48am and was denied entry to the swab station. I can only be allowed into the swabbing station at 10am. Which is 12 minutes away. From my understanding , if the swabbing station is packed ; yes Its right to follow the stipulated timing assigned to us. But the swabbing station is not packed or I would rather put it “sparsely" and not overwhelmed with personnels going for swab (please see attached picture) I would like to sound out my dissatisfaction with the way how the staff manage the situation, they are rude and especially Ms Corol and Mr Kenny Yip. Mr Yip even threaten me with a security officer to usher me out. We are from CMP and with the current covid situation , time is of an essence , we rushed down to get swab and had to head back to work or supervise. 12mins earlier is equivalent to a non entry. I would like to ask what is the logic behind it ? With the swabbing area being pretty empty and those that are suppose to swab at 10.30am where told to wait and congregate outside. Wouldn’t that contradict Safe Distancing Measures? No security or HPB personnels came out to address the situation. (eg. ensure all are at 1m apart and etc) We work base on logic and I do agree to a certain extend that they have to follow by the book, but judging by the un-crowded swabbing station, would it not be better in allowing a constant flow of personnels needed to swab since daily swab allocation are fixed. Flexibility is also a form of good command and control cm management. ( Do HPB need me to come out a schedule on how to be flexible and base on situation awareness and condition ? just my 2cents worth ) This shows how poor is the command and control and training given to the personnels in charge of crowd management control by HPB. This is not being efficient and an utter waste of time and resources to both HPB and CMP companies. I would also like to highlight that on the 27 Nov 2020 at 3.30pm I was due to swab at Jurong Town Hall, but because I was held up by a meeting and arrived at 3.45pm. The security guard told me that the swabbing area been closed and got to reschedule. I would like HPB to clarify on this matter. Being a Ex Senior Medic with SAF Armour, whom have participated and planned in SARS recovery, 1st Ops North Star IV, NDPs, World Bank Summit and various classified emergency planning & evacuations operation. This is highly unacceptable Please see attached of the swabbing station at Jurong Town Hall ( I would like to enquire where is crowd ? ) For your kind perusal, attention and prompt revert is much appreciated.

After upgrading got problem scanning the QR code
Dear HPB, could you influence the manufacturers and retailers, especially SG based, to not selling less/low sugar products at sky high prices? Attached photo is an example.
Again your QR code scanner in 365 app doesn’t work again after upgrade. Please do something on this. Every time you have to close and open many times to get the scanner works. As lousy as before updated version.
Is stone stepping also suitable for TCM foot reflexology for trigger point or balance training ? Can frequent training prevent early signs of illness & reduce fall risk? If beneficial for elderly or patient, can we have a indoor or enclosed version ? Can place in hospital too. In additional, I find some simple balance exercises which at first glance quite interest me. Thus, in my honest opinion, I think elderly will sure like it too... 🙂 #fallprevention #balance #TCM https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ironmountainhotsprings.com/stone-stepping-better-health/
Your latest update on Healthy 365 has sync problems with the tracker watch. Who did the update? Gov.tech ? Why update when the existing Healthy 365 is working exceptionally well?
365 App was updated by HPB from yesterday to today. After launching the updated app as instructed, I could not sync my steps and MVPA. Called the helpline and they told me there are technical issues. Anyone facing similar problems?
In the notification for HPD365 App upgrade, it was mentioned that booking of slots will open up at 8.01am. However, when i updated app at 7am and went in , almost all slots were fully taken. In this case, it is not fair for those that adhere to the timing. If I was unable to secure a slot at the designated opening time, i find this is acceptable. However, the slots open up way before designated timing . How is HPB going to address this matter ? It if not fair to participants who follow right.
In the notification for H365 app upgrade, it was mentioned that slots will be open for booking at 8.01am . However, by the time I updated app at 700am and went in , almost all slots were fully taken. In this case, it is not fair to those that adhere to the timing. If I was unable to secure slot at the 'opening" time, I find this acceptable. However, the slots open up way before the 'schedule' open time. May I know how is HPB going to address this issue?
