It's Food Allergy Awareness Week

It's Food Allergy Awareness Week! More than 12 million Americans have food allergies. That’s one in 25, or 4% of the population. The incidence of food allergy is highest in young children- one in 17 among those under age three. If you are reading this blog, chances are that you or someone you love has been affected by a food allergy. Food allergies are on the rise. More and more children, especially, have extreme food allergies. It is so important to educate everyone you know about the dangers of exposure to allergens. Use this week as your inspiration! Spread the word!
