Parents, young people and adults managing food allergies should have the skills they need to safely navigate food situations safely and treat reactions when they happen. Parents should involve children in their own care as early as possible, seek to teach children to self-advocate and transfer management in age-appropriate ways as children mature. Schools do not need to ban food allergens to keep students safe, but they should have comprehensive plans for all students with food allergies. While it is not possible to eliminate all risks that come with having a food allergy, it is possible to reduce risk and prepare for accidental ingestion. Health professionals, including nurses, pediatricians, family physicians, PCPs, registered dietitian nutritionists and all others, can play a part in helping ensure that those with food allergies have the support and tools they need to thrive.
