May is Food Allergy Awareness Month

May is Food Allergy Awareness Month in Canada and there are many exciting things we have planned this month to increase awareness and education of food allergy across the country. Food allergy is one of the leading causes of potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions and a public health concern in Canada, especially among children. This year’s theme is debunking myths and misinformation about asthma and allergies, including what causes them and how to treat them. Kids with Food Allergies has resources and tools you can use to spread awareness during May and all year long.
