Each August, as the new school year approaches my anxiety level always increases.   Every new school year I wonder: “Will this teacher understand my daughter’s needs?   Will he/she be prepared to administer the Epipen, if needed?   Will he/she keep my daughter safe and included?   Will my daughter have friends that are compassionate in her class?   Will the other parents be understanding of my daughter’s needs?”   Naturally, I like to turn to the web for resources.

Over the past few weeks there have been many posts with advice for how to deal with going back-to-school with food allergies.   I’ve gone through many of them and here are my favorites:

BEST Back-to-School Food Allergy Resources:
