Back-to-school readiness begins with food allergy awareness

7 Sep

check out some good tips on back to school readiness for food allergy from The Cookery blog

Get to know your child’s school nurse. Healthcare professionals want to work in partnership with parents. If your child has a food allergy and will be attending school, meet the nurse.

Michelle Strasz from school community healthcare alliance of Michigan writes:

“More and more schools are either designating peanut-free classrooms or going peanut-free in the cafeteria.  But, there are more hidden food allergies that can also impact a child’s overall health.”

Studies of children with food allergy indicate that 16 percent to 18 percent have had a reaction in school.”
