Ensure your school’s policies are in line with federal and state laws that protect children who live with food allergies.
On October 30, 2013, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) published “Voluntary Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies in Schools and Early Care and Education Programs” - the first national comprehensive guidelines for school food allergy management. The guidelines are intended to support the implementation of school food allergy management policies in schools and early childhood programs, and guide improvements to existing practices. Access the guidelines here.
Statewide guidelines for school food allergy management have been published in the following states. The links to state food allergy guidelines are provided solely as a service to our readers, and neither the listing nor the links constitute an endorsement by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).
