Food Allergy Awareness

There are about 5.9 million kids living with food allergies, 1 in 13 kids under the age of 18. Nearly 40% of those kids have suffered a severe or life-threatening reaction. We would like to increase awareness about food allergies by reminding students and parents of the following:

  • Food allergies are very serious. It is not a joking matter.

  • Reactions can be life threatening.

  • Preventing exposure is crucial

  • Don’t share food, forks, knives, spoons, or straws with friends

  • Wash hands after eating. Some people with food allergies can get sick even if they are touched by something that has a tiny bit of food on it.

  • Food allergies can make Halloween even scarier. Please remember not to bring anything with nuts into the classroom.

  • If a friend with allergies is sick, tell an adult right away. This will make sure that your friend gets help and gets the medicine they need to feel better.
