Bringing food allergy management and awareness to your community

Divided Communities

At times school communities can become divided by food allergy interventions and policies.
When parents are afraid that their child’s health and happiness are not being ensured they can become angry. If the parents of children without food allergies are afraid that their child’s rights are being compromised because of unnecessary interventions they can become angry.



Educating all parents in the school community can go a long way to bridge divides. Drive home that safety and self-esteem will be insured while doing all that is possible to ensure that all children can learn and thrive. Knowing why kids with food allergies need to do certain things to take good care of themselves can go a long way in keeping school communities from dividing over food allergy issues. Awareness and understanding can help create communities of support and inclusion. School nurses and physicians, healthcare providers, school administration, staff, parents and students must partner with one and other.
