Book a Food Allergy Awareness Session

Effective food allergy management starts with education. By booking a food allergy awareness session, you’re taking real steps in meeting your duty of care, in the classroom and in the playground. Food allergies in kids can be frightening for classmates and teachers. Our sessions are specially designed to raise food allergy awareness in the classroom and get kids practising safe prevention strategies. They’re also plenty of fun! By educating kids on the risks, your child care centre, kindy or school not only becomes a safer place, it becomes more inclusive for kids with food allergies.
