Children with severe food allergies require special precaution. Parents and all caregivers must be informed on how to prevent and manage a child's allergic reaction, including the administration of epinephrine (adrenaline). Fatal food allergy reactions often occur outside the home and sometimes in a school setting. Parents need to make sure the school has a written emergency action plan providing instructions on recognizing and managing severe life-threatening allergies. Parents also should make sure that epinephrine is immediately accessible in the student's classroom and that multiple school staff members are trained in its administration.
