Stand Up to Your Food Allergy

Mommy, I’m itchy.  Daddy, my mouth feels funny! If these ringing complaints sound familiar, your child may be allergic to something they’ve eaten. Food and skin allergies in kids have been on the rise during the past few decades. While most allergens will simply cause uncomfortable symptoms like hives, eczema, and itchiness in the mouth or throat, allergens like shellfish and peanuts can put your child at risk for anaphylaxis.

Help your child identify and remember which “bad guy” foods to stay away from by coloring in one of these characters. Submit your coloring to our gallery and enter to win a Whole Foods gift card!
