Food Allergy in Schools |

What can parents do with a child in school who has a food allergy? Natalie Castro, Registered Dietitian at Baptist Health South Florida, recommends talking to the teacher and bringing everything with you as far as foods packing.

She also says it is better if you speak to the school administrators to let them know what is going on with your kid and the school has to accommodate in some way.

Even though if the school has a policy that doesn’t allow your child to go with his own food, the authorities can make an exception.
