Raise Awareness - Its National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month

Posted 5.5.09 | Nutrition Specialist

It’s spring time and for many people this means one thing - seasonal allergies. You, however, deal with food allergies on a daily basis. May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, and it’s the perfect time to get involved in your local allergy community to raise awareness about food allergies.

Even though food allergies are on the rise, many people still aren’t aware of the severity of them or how to keep an allergy-prone child safe. During the month of May, get out there and talk to your community about food allergies. Participate in the local walks, talks and parades, or…

Start your own event! Gather your friends and family together for an allergy-free picnic or bake sale to benefit food allergy research or your favorite food allergy awareness group, like Kids With Food Allergies or Allergy Moms.

I’d love to hear what you are doing for Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.
