Food allergy is estimated to affect approximately 1 in 25 school-aged children
and is the most common trigger of anaphylaxis in this age group.
School food-allergy management requires strategies to reduce the risk of
ingestion of the allergen as well as procedures to recognize and treat
allergic reactions and anaphylaxis. The role of the pediatrician or pediatric
health care provider may include diagnosing and documenting a potentially
life-threatening food allergy, prescribing self-injectable epinephrine,
helping the child learn how to store and use the medication in a responsible
manner, educating the parents of their responsibility to implement
prevention strategies within and outside thehomeenvironment, and working
with families, schools, and students in developing written plans to
reduce the risk of anaphylaxis and to implement emergency treatment in
the event of a reaction. This clinical report highlights the role of the pediatrician
and pediatric health care provider in managing students with food
allergies. Pediatrics 2010;126:1232–1239
