Managing Student Food Allergies

Eleanor Garrow-Majka and Sally Schoessler RN, BSN, MSEd with host Amy Garcia

As most school nurses know, food allergies can be potentially fatal. The symptoms may be mild (rashes, hives, itching, swelling, etc.) or severe (trouble breathing, wheezing, loss of consciousness, etc.). Creating a safe environment for students with food allergies requires collaboration between the school nurse, parents, the child and other school staff. This segment provides a guide for creating an allergy management plan for your school.
