Back To School Series Part 3: School and Food Allergy Basics

Back to school is here…in fact, school is about two weeks away for many of us.  It is in that spirit that I make this post, the third part of my back to school series.

In 2011, I was honored to be a guest columnist in the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network’s (FAAN) August/September member newsletter.  This article is still one of my absolute favorites to author because I am so passionate about letting children with food allergies still have the opportunity to be kids.  I hope you enjoy it too!

As The Food Allergy Mom, becoming a member of Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) is one of the smartest decisions I made.  If you haven’t become a member of FARE yet, I hope you will take a minute to visit their website and consider signing up to be a member.  This is a worthwhile investment in your child’s safety and their future.  But don’t take my word for it…visit their website on your own and click around to see all the resources they offer families with food allergies and the research and advocacy they do as well!
