Understand they have a food allergy and that certain foods can make them sick and are completely off limits

🍼 Know what they're allergic to and understand what foods usually contain their allergens

👶 Communicate to others that they have a food allergy - learn to say "I have a food allergy" and "I am allergic to [insert allergens] or "No [insert allergens]."

Spokin Tip: Teach your kids to identify their allergens in safe ways.  Show them images of allergens online or practice using toy food during playtime.
