Food Allergies - A Coloring Book for kids
Food Allergy coloring pages are a great way to teach and help kids learn about the various food allergies that they may encounter or be exposed to. We think these are a
wonderful education tool and are pleased to offer them to you, or you school, or organization to further kids knowledge and acceptance of food allergies.
We cannot take credit for this wonderful idea though, our friend Karen who is a determined volunteer with the FARE Walk for Food Allergy
came up with the idea ! We are honored that she came to us and allowed us to be a small part of her hard work promoting food allergy awareness and education!

This set of activity pages were created in order to help support a "WALK" event, as one page remindes people to get up an walk !
Your organization may use the entire set of food allergy educational activity pages as a book to give to kids attending the walk, or use individual pages as teaching aids
in class or as an event activity !
Facts about Food Allergies
As many as 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children-that's 1 in 25 adults and 1 in 13 children under age 18.
Food allergy occurs when a personís immune system mistakenly attacks a food protein. Symptoms range from mild (rashes, hives, itching) to life-threatening (trouble breathing, loss of consciousness.
Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death.
Even trace amounts of a food allergen can cause a potentially deadly reaction.
The key to survival is early recognition of symptoms and appropriate treatment: The single factor most associated with death is a delay or failure to treat with epinephrine.
Food allergens are life-altering for the entire family and require constant vigilance.
The most common allergens are foods we encounter every day: milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish.
There is no cure for food allergies.
