Do you hesitate before inviting your child’s food-allergic friends to play, sleep over, or share a meal with your family? This session prepares attendees to ask the right questions, avoid common allergens and recognize signs that a child’s been exposed. A board-certified allergist leads this discussion, including instruction on epinephrine auto-injectors. This is a great session for parents, coaches, troop leaders, babysitters, and extended family and friends of food-allergic kids. Take the mystery out of food allergy and gain confidence in supervising affected kids!
