The Food Allergy Dilemma for Schools and Activities
Food allergies are considered disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As such, those coping with food allergies deserve and are entitled to reasonable accommodations.
Exposure to an allergen by those coping with the disease can result in anaphylaxis, a serious, sometimes life-threatening reaction.
An estimated 32 million Americans suffer from food allergies of which 5.6 million are children. To put that into perspective, an average of two kids in every classroom are coping with the disease.
As a result of the skyrocketing number of individuals afflicted with food allergies, many schools, youth sports leagues, scout troops and other organizations are implementing allergen exclusion policies to help avoid inadvertent exposure, limiting the kinds of food that can be brought in and consumed at snack time, celebrations, and events.
How a Custom Safe Snack Guide Can Help
But how do you implement an effective allergen exclusion policy? That's where your custom Safe Snack Guide comes in.
We've partnered with over 115 responsible manufacturers to understand how each of 2000+ products in our database are manufactured with respect to the 11 allergens we track: peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy, wheat, fish, crustacean shellfish, sesame, mustard and gluten.
By registering for an account, you can create lists of food or snacks that exclude any combination of the 11 allergens we track for your classroom or event. Best of all the list is interactive, so your audience members can click any entry to see a description, ingredient list, and allergen profile for that product.
Whether you're a school nurse responsible for multiple classrooms each with different allergen restrictions or someone planning a single event or celebration, we've got you covered.
All product information comes from the only reliable and timely source: directly from the manufacturer. We never rely on the label for allergen processing information nor should you.
We track 11 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, gluten, sesame, mustard) and four industry-recognized certifications (kosher, organic, gluten-free, non-GMO).
