Food Allergies

"Allergy" refers to a variety of conditions caused by an adverse reaction of the immune system to substances in the environment.  Some substances - dust mites, animal dander, molds or pollens - can be inhaled.  Others (e.g.; poison ivy) causes reactions upon contact with the skin.  Some substances are ingested, such as food.  With a food allergy, the body reacts as though that particular food product is harmful.  90% of all food allergies are caused by 8 food items:  milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 4%-6% of children ages 4 years and younger have food allergy.  The purpose of this training is to familiarize teachers with various food allergens, potential reactions, and appropriate responses.
