So with that said I have included a template for the labels that we distributed to the school to use for any food events held in any early childhood classrooms that might have a child with food allergies. In my next post I will share with you a few of my favorite "Back to School" products from "Blue Bear Allergy Aware" online catalog.
USE THIS LABEL TEMPLATE TO PRINT OUT
"STOP I HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES" LABELS.
(AVERY 5163 2x4 NEON LABELS)
GIVE THESE TO YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER/NURSE TO PLACE ON YOUR CHILD'S BACK DURING CLASSROOM FOOD EVENTS.
Our "Nut Eggactly" mom has seen this implemented in the child care setting and has found that it is very helpful to alert any volunteers or staff that are not familiar with your child's food allergy.

2013-2014 Breakfast Allergen Chart
2013-2014 Lunch Menu Allergen Chart
I also included a section from the FAQ's. I was curious to know if parents are prohibited from bringing store bought or homemade sweets into the classroom for birthday celebrations.The FAQ's didn't quite answer my the question but they specify that the "special" treat should not be served during the lunch period so that the student's appetite is not ruined.

If your child attends a public school we would love to hear from you! Please share your experience with managing your child's food allergy and any helpful tips for our HFAN families!

Hi there! Our meeting last night refreshed my soul. It was great to meet each of you and here your stories. Thank you all for coming and sharing a piece of your lives with all of us.
Below is an example of a food allergy policy that will be implemented this upcoming year at an area school. Feel free to share this information with your schools.

On another note, Dairy Allergy Mom and I are submitting our FARE New Support Group Application Form this week. Also, the meeting dates for the remainder of this year are posted. If you know of someone who can benefit from an 'in person' support group, please bring them to the next meeting. Hope to see y'all at the FARE walk in September!
I've taken longer than I intended to post the second part of this blog. Vacation will do that to your inbox; you return to a mountain...
