Health Tip: Protect Kids Who Have Food Allergies

Health Tip: Protect Kids Who Have Food Allergies

11/24/11

(HealthDay News) -- Depending on your child's sensitivity, a food allergy can range from very mild to life-threatening.

The American Dietetic Association offers these suggestions to help protect kids who have food allergies:

  • Always check food labels for potential allergens.
  • Make sure you inform all family members, teachers and caregivers about the severity of food allergies and symptoms to watch for.
  • Make sure your child is fully informed, so he or she can be proactive in preventing an allergic reaction.
  • Work with a registered dietitian to develop a healthy eating plan that excludes allergens.
