This Halloween season raise your awareness of food allergies and promote inclusion of all trick-or-treaters!

 

Did You Know …

  • A recent study found that 1 in 13 U.S. children and teens suffer from food allergies.
  • There is no cure for food allergies…strict avoidance is key.
  • Eight foods account for 90% of all food-allergic reactions in the U.S.: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish. Nuts cause the most fatalities.
  • Allergic reactions are unpredictable: they may present and progress differently than previous reactions and a seemingly mild reaction can turn serious quickly.
  • Teenagers are the highest risk group for a fatal reaction.
  • Trace amounts of a food allergen can cause a reaction. Most are due to ingestion, but some are due to contact or inhalation (cooking fumes or peanut dust).
  • Prompt administration of epinephrine (EpiPen) is crucial to surviving a life-threatening reaction.
