Proponents say there is a clear need today because there has been, for reasons unknown, a dramatic jump in the number of children with severe allergies to foods like peanuts, shellfish, and eggs, and that 25 percent of them will have their first allergic reaction -- unexpectedly -- in school.

Attorney General Madigan and Representative Nybo said the bill addresses an increasing safety need in Illinois classrooms. Studies show that not only are food allergies on the rise among children, but, according to the Journal of Pediatrics, one in four cases of childhood anaphylaxis occur in children who were not previously diagnosed with a food or other severe allergy. The Journal also found that 25 percent of first reactions among children allergic to peanuts or tree nuts occurred while they were in a school setting.
