Food Allergy Resources

Teach Your Child to Recognize Allergenic Foods

April 2005

Parents of children with food allergies work hard to keep their children far away from foods to which they are allergic. But will your child know what his allergens look like should he encounter them in his environment?

Has your child ever seen a peanut, or a glass of cow's milk? If not, he may not recognize the danger if he does encounter it. Help your child learn how to avoid allergens by showing him, from a safe distance, what his allergens look like and discussing it in an age-appropriate manner. Photographs, cooking magazines, television shows, and toy foods are all opportunities to learn.
