Transcript of Food Allergies
The reason I chose food allergies
is because of them...our children.This
is one of the things that is harmful to
children and often times is overseen
by adults. It only takes a split second
for a child to get a hold of the food, the
cook to put something that the child
shouldn't eat, or the parent/caregiver
to give them the food.
What is a food allergy?
Is an immune system reaction that occurs
soon after eating a certain food.
The most common foods that cause allergies are:
Eggs, Milk, Peanuts, Tree nuts, Fish, Shellfish, Wheat & Soy
Symptoms of food allergies are: Vomiting and/or abdominal cramps, hives, Shortness of breath, wheezing, repetitive coughing, shock, tight or hoarse throat, swelling of tongue, weak pulse, pale/blue skin, dizziness, and anaphylaxis.
