  1. Have used the 4.5 minute video explaining “What are Food Allergies?” for grades K-5. (Probably 12-15 times) AND the food coloring page for grades k-2.
    We usually show it 1x/yr in the class, and send home letter to parents that we have food allergies, how they can help. ITS GREAT! I do wish you had one for older kids.

    With 6-8th graders- they are so anxious about being any different from others- they don’t want to tell anyone, and there has been bullying.
    Thank you- its a great resource.

  2. The posters were really helpful when I was explaining things to my daughter’s school. I think sometimes they assume we as allergy parents are experts and having some verified info to give on a handout is incredibly helpful. – Homa

  3. I used your Food Allergy Quiz as part of a presentation for the Board of Health in Mocksville, NC. I brought some allergy-friendly products, asked questions and gave out the products for the first correct answer. I felt it helped keep everyone engaged, checked their knowledge of food allergies and introduced them to really great products all at once.

  4. It was so great to finally meet you this week. Your presentations were wonderful! I absolutely love the tools you have developed and use them to discuss food allergy management school administration as well as raise awareness with the children in our district, K-5. I am so appreciative of your efforts and the resources you continue to develop for the food allergy community. No bad or ugly here; just a big, fat “Thank you!” 🙂

  5. My children’s teachers, school nurse and principal all love Dr. Mike’s explanation of what is food allergies for kids. That is my fav resource. Thank you!!

  6. Did safety & awareness training for pre-school & religious school staffs. Added more label reading, personal experiences and video from auto injector company on proper use. Lots of great feedback!
