Food allergies affect one in 13 children – roughly two kids in every classroom across the U.S. And food allergies among children have increased more than 50% since 1997, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Allergic reactions to food can be mild or severe, and potentially deadly.
Parents and caregivers are invited to a presentation by food allergy specialist Nancy Ott, MD.
