Food Allergy Awareness Week


As many as 15 million people in the U.S. have a food allergy, including 1 in 13 children. Whether you have a child with a food allergy or not, it is a serious condition that affects everyone. From birthday parties, to sleepovers, to a day at the mall, the slightest trace of an allergen can be life threatening. For those directly affected, this is no laughing matter.

  • Stress to your children that they shouldn't make jokes about food allergies and that it is a serious medical condition.

  • While it's good to share many things, don't share food with friends who have food allergies. You never know if something could contain a trace amount of an allergen.

  • Wash your hands after eating.

  • Ask what your friend is allergic to and help them avoid it.

  • Get help immediately if a friend eats something they are allergic to and becomes sick.

The only true way to prevent a food allergy reaction is to avoid the allergy-causing food.
