First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful food allergy moms!
If you’re looking for some ways to help spread education & awareness during Food Allergy Awareness Week, here are 5 great ways:
Consider teaching children & their friends/classmates through books and videos.
1. DVD for children: All About Allergies is available at Amazon. Contains Daniel Tiger, Arthur, Peg + Cat, and Word World.

Share resources with your child’s school, so they can help educate classmates and staff.
