Managing Food Allergies in Schools

New tool kit available

Nearly six million children in the U.S. have one or more food allergies which can become an issue at any point during the school day—on the bus, at recess, in the cafeteria or classroom.

Helping all school staff be prepared to help prevent and manage a child's severe allergic reaction is vital. The new toolkit from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contains tips sheets, training presentations, and podcasts and is a great resource that will help prepare all staff for allergic reactions in school.
