When a bite of the wrong food can cause your child to stop breathing, preparing for back to school includes planning around food allergies.
About one in 13 children, approximately two per classroom, have some type of food allergy. The most common food allergens are: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybean. These account for about 90 percent of all food allergies in the US.
Dr. BJ Lanser, director of the Pediatric Food Allergy Program at National Jewish Health, and Kids with Food Allergies, offer these tips to help keep children safe as they return to the classroom.
1. Meet with school staff members
2. Create a written plan
3. Post pictures
4. Make safe snacks
5. Show and tell
6. Ask other parents
7. Get all medical forms and supplies to school in advance
