Food Allergy Awareness Week 2020

Share the big news

 Food Allergy Awareness Week (May 10-16) is a time to educate the public about life-threatening food allergies. And advocate for more research and better treatment options. According to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), 32 million North Americans have potentially life-threatening food allergies. Additionally, one in every 13 children live with a food allergy, which breaks down to about 2-3 children in every classroom. 

Food allergies reactions can vary - unpredictably - from mild to severe. Meaning just because you or a loved one experienced a mild reaction in the past, doesn’t mean the next time won’t be severe. And vice versa. 

Common food allergens Nearly any food can trigger an allergic action. But there are nine types of food that cause the majority of allergic reactions. 

These include:  

Cow’s milk   

Egg   

Peanut   

Soy   

Wheat   

Tree Nut   

Shellfish   

Fish   

Sesame    

While these allergens account for about 90% of all reactions, there are many other less common food allergies. Food allergies can develop at any age, including well into adulthood. And even if you’ve safely eaten that food before. 

Fortunately, children may outgrow certain food allergies (e.g. milk, egg, soy and wheat). But that isn’t always the case. So, the whole family should adapt and take steps to stay safe

Responding to an allergic reaction: 

An allergic reaction can quickly cause swelling of the airway and a sudden drop in blood pressure, which may be life-threatening.

If you recognize signs of an allergic reaction (e.g. hives or rash, difficulty breathing, swelling in the face, throat or tongue, etc.), you should immediately: Call 911 and keep the person calm.   Help the person use their epinephrine auto-injector .   

Monitor the person’s  response and breathing. 

Consider giving a second dose if signs persist and EMS will not arrive for 5-10 minutes.
