Over the past decade, food allergies have increased and have become a growing concern, especially when combined with asthma. Food allergies have a huge impact on families’ lives requiring education to prevent and treat reactions. In 2011, the CAAEC developed the Family Food Allergy Education Program to educate families and to assist them in finding a balance between food allergy risks and safety measures. With education, all children with food allergies can lead a healthy life. The CAAEC currently offers two separate food allergy education programs, a program for parents with children less than 7 years of age and a newly developed school age program for children 7 – 11 years old and their parent(s). These two programs are offered at the CAAEC at no cost. Click here to locate the current class schedule.
