Paint one fingernail teal to show your support for food allergy awareness. It’s a great, simple way to start a conversation about food allergy and to create online awareness.
Post your pic, share it with us, and tag it using #allergyaware! Our friends from Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia started this campaign, so let’s make it global to show support for everyone with food allergy.
AllergyAware.ca’s free 30-minute course teaches you the basics of food allergy, the signs and symptoms of a reaction, and what steps to take if a reaction occurs.
Share the AllergyAware.ca course with your online community. Upon successfully finishing the course, you’ll get a Certificate of Completion.
The Allergy Awareness Challenge features two separate challenges – one for elementary schools and another for high school students.
The Challenge consists of free downloadable resources for educators, including lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, student worksheets, information sheets, posters, and more. It provides fun activities and engaging discussions to help students take food allergy seriously.
