We wanted to review some of the things you have learned this week
for Allergy Awareness Week. Remember, food allergies are very serious, so don’t
share food with anyone. Be sure to wash your hands after eating. Tell an adult
if you see someone being picked on because of their allergy. If you notice
someone having an allergic reaction, get them help right away. Follow these
steps to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy!
We have some facts for you for Allergy Awareness Week.
Unfortunately, about a third of kids with food allergies report that they have
been bullied specifically because of their allergies. If a friend or classmate
has a food allergy, don’t tease, bully or make fun of them. Tell an adult right
away if you see other kids picking on someone with a food allergy. Let’s work
together to make sure everyone feels safe and stays healthy!
In honor of Allergy Awareness Week, we have some more facts about
food allergies. Did you know that every three minutes, a food allergy reaction
sends someone to the emergency room in the U.S.? If your friend feels sick or
thinks he or she may have eaten something they are allergic to, tell an adult
right away, take your friend to the nurse, or dial 911! They will make sure
your friend gets help and gets the medicine they need to feel better. Every
second counts. Also, never let the friend who is feeling sick go to the
bathroom alone- stay by your friend until help arrives.
May is Allergy Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 13 kids in the United States has a food allergy? That’s about two kids in every classroom. For kids with food allergies, even a tiny amount of the food they are allergic to can make them very sick. This week, stay tuned for tips about how we can keep everyone safe and healthy. And be sure to check out the posters hung around the school to help educate yourself about food allergies.
Food allergies affect nearly 6 million kids and can be life threatening. One way you can keep everyone safe is by not sharing food. It’s hard to know every single ingredient in a food, and it could have have something in it that could make another person very sick. So share jokes and laughs in the cafeteria, but not food. Stay tuned for some more tips tomorrow.
