Potential Food Allergens in Preschool, School, Camp Crafts and Activities


According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, β€œFood used in lesson plans for math or science, crafts, and cooking classes may need to be substituted depending on the allergies of the students.”

The guide below contains a list of some unexpected places you can find common food allergens, along with precautions and alternatives you can use.

Please note that this is not a complete list. It is a general guide only and does not include every potential food allergen. Please verify all ingredients yourself by contacting the manufacturers as ingredients may change.

This post and all the comments are one of the reasons that KFA has been voted as a TopRated Nonprofit.  We are so fortunate for all that you provide and I endeavor to spread the word to help all families with food allergies.  We are in this together. Already airlines have made changes since we flew to CA last summer - Delta was quite accommodating to let up pre-board and wipe down our seating area but United gave us a slight hassle until I spoke with a supervisor.  It is heartening to learn others positive experiences.

 Sharon!  We are glad you found us!!


You will find more suggestions for bread on our forums.  I posted your question on our main support forum so you can find more suggestions.  Here is a link to the post.  Feel free to post and introduce yourself.    http://community.kidswithfooda...eggs-milk-andamp-soy


I believe EnerG makes bread free of your dd's allergens.  I have heard good things about the tapioca bread & the rice bread.
