Food Allergy Management

A food allergy is a potentially serious immune-mediated response that develops after ingesting or coming into contact with specific foods or food additives. Anaphylaxis is a rapidly progressing, life-threatening allergic reaction. Caring for children with diagnosed food allergies at-risk for anaphylaxis in the school setting requires a collaborative partnership with the students, parents, healthcare providers and school staff.
