Free webinar hosted by Kids With Food Allergies on August 20, 2013 featuring guest speakers Dayle Hayes, MS, RD, and Deb Indorato, RD, LDN. The following is the video recording and a list of resources to help you with nutrition and food safety for students with food allergies.
Food Allergy in School Part 1: What Parents Need to Know - Video of previous webinar that covers basic food allergy management principles and tips for different school settings (cafeteria, bus, classroom, etc.). Also includes information about handwashing and cleaning, school health plans and more free resources.
A requirement of the Healthy Hunger-Free Child Act of 2010 will be implemented this fall and it requires all schools to update their Wellness Policy and must include parents on their committee. This is a great opportunity for parents to recommend that schools implement food-free celebrations in classrooms to benefit the health of all children.
Dayle Hayes will be responding to additional questions submitted during our live webinar in an upcoming blog post from KFA.
