Food Allergy 101, Teacher Edition – What Teachers Need to Know!
Great teachers want to understand how to keep students with food allergy safe and included.
We all know that teachers can make a significant impact on the lives of the children they teach. Some of the greatest teachers are the ones who make you feel like you matter in their classroom and that you can achieve anything you set your mind to doing, and those teachers want all children to be included despite conditions like food allergy.
We recorded this episode with those amazing teachers in mind!
As teachers spend countless hours with kiddos, this episode provides 5 A+ Tips for Teachers who teach kiddos who have food allergies.
Thank you, teachers, for taking good care of kiddos with food allergy!
This podcast episode was produced after a teacher contacted us, so we are delighted to share this info with teachers and others who love a school-aged kiddo with food allergy.

Additional Show Notes
I have talked about a non-profit…
The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. This is one of the most important components of a school's food allergy policy!
A medical emergency response plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program, and Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
