Food Allergy Awareness Week 2014

May 11-17 is National Food Allergy Awareness Week, and it's important as parents to arm ourselves with knowledge about food allergies, either for our kids or someone else's who may have them.

Did you know that approximately 15 million Americans and 2.5 million Canadians have food allergy? In fact, it now affects 1 in 13 kids! That's why it's important to be informed. Here are some great places to start…

  • FoodAllergy.org

  • Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
  • Anaphylaxis Canada
  • Allergy/Asthma Information Association
