Back to School with Food Allergies Means Depending on Your PALS

For the 2.2 million school-age children who have food allergies and their parents, back to school means educating classmates and parents before the school year even begins.

Be a PAL: Protect A Life (TM) From Food Allergies consists of five easy steps:

1. Food allergies are serious. Don't make jokes about them.

2. Don't share food with friends who have food allergies.

3. Wash your hands after eating.

4. Ask what your friends are allergic to and help them avoid it.

5. If a friend who has food allergies becomes ill, get help immediately.
