Food allergies are a growing concern for both school health and education officials. Food allergies affect approximately four percent of school-aged children. For reasons that are not completely understood, food allergies among children are increasing. One out of five students with food allergies will have a reaction while at school. Up to 25 percent of students who have a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction at school have no previous known food allergy. (CDC)
