Food Allergy Training Programs


Are you or someone you love managing food allergies?  FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) has a wealth of information and resources available to help those managing this life threatening condition.  There are training materials available for teachers, school nurses, parents & caregivers and restaurants.  Educating yourself and others is the best option for spreading awareness to ensure people with allergies can remain safe and healthy. 

If you have younger children dealing with life threatening allergies be sure to check out Binky Goes Nuts.

Binky Goes Nuts: Understanding Peanut Allergies: The popular animated PBS children’s series Arthur explores food alleriges in an episode titled "Binky Goes Nuts." The DVD and educational activity unit can be used by teachers and parents to teach kids about food allergy, and teach them how to help make their schools a safer place.
