CDC Proposes School Regs to Deal with Food Allergies

Nuts to that


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have published their first food allergy guidelines for schools to protect the health and safety of children.

"We strive to ensure that students with food allergies are both safe and included at school," said John L. Lehr, chief executive officer of FARE. "We strongly encourage schools to adopt these new guidelines, or to examine their existing plans to make improvements in line with the CDC's new recommendations. The guidelines will greatly improve the way we care for students with food allergies by having uniform procedures in place."
