Bringing food allergy management and awareness to your community

What is a Food Allergy? Kids Awareness Module

Students pick up on the messages of their teachers, parents, and others in the school community. Bullying may arise when there are misperceptions and negative attitudes about food allergies. Replacing these with education can create an environment of support and understanding. Educating staff and parents can change the attitudes of children. Direct education to students may be very effective. Children also can play an important role in teaching each other, their parents, and play a critical role in establishing a supportive community.
