Back to School with Food Allergies- Tip #1
It's that time of year again. While you're busy prepping those backpacks for school and updating your child's Fall wardrobe don't forget to prep the school for your child's allergies.
All This Week I'll be highlighting school food allergy management tips:
Tip #1- Have a Food Allergy Emergency Plan
A Food Allergy Emergency Plan should include:
student's allergies, medications, signs and symptoms of allergic reaction
contact numbers (parents and healthcare providers)
informed consent and insurance information.
FAAN (food allergy and anaphylaxis network) has a great document
that you can download from their site for free
Food Allergy Action Plan
Food Allergy Wristband Kit
How cool are these customizable food allergy bracelets?
Your kiddo can feel cool (and you can feel cool, calm, and collected)
