Peanut oral immunotherapy has garnered a lot of interest over the past several years. Oral immunotherapy (OIT) trials have showed some success in lessening the risk of a severe reaction, called anaphylaxis.

Most children have not been able to add their food allergen back into their diet without some restrictions.

A new study took a fresh approach to oral immunotherapy by studying this treatment in very young children for the first time.
Are you getting ready to send your child with food allergies off to school? Whether it is your child's first year in school or the sixth, you must send in new forms every year. Find out what you need to do to prepare for a safer school year.
Do you need ideas to share with your child's teacher to encourage non-food rewards in the classroom? Many elementary schools are becoming more food allergy aware. Using non-food rewards is healthier for everyone, not just those with food allergies. See our list of ideas to get a class up and moving after a job well done!
A new Illinois law allows school bus drivers and police to give epinephrine to students and others having severe allergic reactions.

The law also expands access to epinephrine auto-injectors in public places.
