#1in13 US Children Has a Food Allergy - Including Mine

Kids with food allergies need to be careful about what they eat and touch. Foods that seem “safe” can have hidden allergens and cause a reaction. With careful planning, a parent can make sure their child has safe food to eat. They also need to be prepared to treat an allergic reaction with a medicine called epinephrine, which comes in a device called an auto-injector. After using their epinephrine auto-injector, they need to call 911 and go to the hospital. Learn more about why food allergies are a big deal:
