Food allergies have become much more common in the past several years. Thanks to the internet and social media, we are also much more aware of them causing many daycare centers, childcare providers and schools to ban the most common allergenic foods. And for good reason.
An estimated 1 in 13 school-age children are allergic to at least one food. Kids with food allergies are at increased risk of exposre to these foods in a school setting whether foods have been banned or not. As a parent, it is natural for you to worry but educating yourself is the first step to protecting your child from food allergies.
