When I was in elementary school, I remember every so often having to watch videos about food allergies and how to use an Epi-Pen at daycare with my peers (back when there was a grey cap to remove, and even a simple bump to the black end would deploy the needle—whether or not that was true—and the legacy device didn’t come with a needle-guard as the new version does ). From my experience working in daycare several years ago (and a good half-dozen years out of my own daycare experience!), I do think children now are more educated about the seriousness of food allergies than they were, even fifteen to twenty years ago when I was a kid that age.
Sometimes, though, the severity of food allergy, of cross-contamination, of what people with food allergies cannot eat—no not even just a little—is (surprisingly) hard to get across. Here are some ways to help the people in your life understand food allergies.
No matter how much or how little your friends and family understand about food allergies, your number one priority is staying safe and healthy. Ensuring you keep two things with you or your child at all times—your epinephrine and a food allergy medical ID bracelet or necklace—can help keep you safe.
