Some Food Allergy Facts

With the upcoming Walk for Food Allergy on October 7 in Milford, it’s a good time remind ourselves about the sad facts of food allergies:

→Over 25% of children experience their first allergic reaction to food at school from an undiagnosed food allergy

→The most fatal food allergies are to peanuts, tree nuts and milk

→The adolescent age group is at the highest risk of fatal food induced anaphylaxis.
