It's time to go back to school. Are you ready?

It's that time of year again. As you prepare to send the kids back to school, Anaphylaxis Canada is pleased to provide you with a back-to school checklist to help you prepare for this school year.

Back to School Checklist:

Educate your child about his/her allergies and review key rules:
Do not share foods or take food from others.
Read food labels. Avoid any foods with precautionary warnings, such as may contain.
Always carry an epinephrine auto-injector, i.e. EpiPen or Twinject when age appropriate. No auto-injector = No eating.
Wash your hands before and after eating.
Wear medical identification, such as a MedicAlert bracelet.
Talk to others about your allergies.
Collaborate with your child's school staff and community:
Establish open communication when developing avoidance strategies and plans. Strive for allergy-safe, not allergy-free environments.
Provide completed medical forms and in-date auto-injectors on time.
Advocate for no eating policies on buses and other settings where no adult supervision (for younger children) is provided.
Help educate the school community about anaphylaxis.
Consult with foodservice/cafeteria staff to inquire about their allergen management policies for food prepared at schools.

Review emergency procedures with staff:
Anaphylaxis emergency plan download from www.allergysafecommunities.ca

How to use an auto-injector - visit www.epipen.ca or www.twinject.ca
Remember, anaphylaxis management is a shared responsibility that includes allergic children, parents, educators and the entire school community. Only by working together can we help keep our kids safe.

For more information on anaphylaxis or to order products online, please visit our website at www.anaphylaxis.ca

We wish you all a happy and safe school year!
