May is Food Allergy Awareness Month in Canada
Food allergy is one of the leading causes of potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions and a growing public health concern in Canada, especially among children.
Imagine being the only kid at a birthday party who can’t eat any cake because the ingredients in it could cause a fatal allergic reaction.
Allergy Awareness Month helps kids without allergies (and their parents) understand what their peers are going through.
Each of us should work in our own way to raise awareness of food allergies and anaphylaxis.
