Food Allergy Management in Schools: What You Must Know


On Wednesday, February 24, 2016

SNA held a webinar about food allergy management in schools.

Food allergies, do you know enough? If you don’t know how to prevent food allergy reactions at school, or how to respond to a severe reaction, this webinar can help.

Creating awareness around food allergies is an urgent and necessary task. This webinar will help school nutrition professionals understand the vigilance necessary to provide a safe environment for their students.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the symptoms of a food allergy reaction and appropriate response.
  2. Identify key strategies for managing food allergens in schools, particularly during high risk situations.
  3. Apply evidence-based recommendations and resources in their district/school’s response to food allergy management.
