Food Allergy 101
Get the facts from Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) FARE on what food allergies are—and what they aren’t—plus how to recognize the symptoms and seek testing from a healthcare professional.
Section 504 and Written Management Plans
FARE recommends that parents of children with food allergy create, in collaboration with their school, a written food allergy management plan. One type of plan is called a 504 Plan, which is available under a federal civil rights law, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
A 504 Plan outlines how a school will address the individual needs of your child. Learn how to develop one with your school team.
Allergies and Anaphylaxis
Your school should have an appropriate Food Allergy Management and Prevention Plan in place to promote the health and well-being of children with food allergies.
School plans should establish priorities for reducing the risk of exposure to food allergens and establish practices for responding to food allergies.
Episodic Conditions, such as Allergies, Asthma, Epilepsy, etc.

Thanks for sharing that it is important for us to ensure that we undergo allergen testings. In doing so, it helps to ensure that we can manage our allergies. I will definitely look for an allergist to get the test done.
