Keeping kids with food allergies safe requires a commitment at home, in class and after school. Teachers, foodservice staff and childcare providers should speak with parents about the child’s food allergy and listen carefully to the details of preventing and handling a reaction. If you know someone or have a child with a food allergy, remind them not to trade meals or snacks at school, wash their hands before meals and snacks, talk with someone in charge if they begin to feel sick after eating, and read those labels. Food allergies are a matter of life or death.
