Food Allergy Incidence on the Rise


According to a recent study published in Pediatrics, 6 million children -- or one in every 13 children -- have food allergies. That's twice the 2007 estimate of 3 million. In addition, two in every five kids with a food allergy experience life-threatening reactions, like swelling of the throat or a drop in blood pressure.

These findings support continued need for education and awareness of food allergies within the school setting. Reactions to food allergies can be life-threatening, and education is key to children's safety. If you suspect your child has a food allergy, proper diagnosis by a physician is critical, especially for establishing a treatment plan in case of accidental exposure.
