Kids and Food Allergies [infographic]

Children’s food allergies increased 50% between 1997 and 2011… and kids’ peanut allergies tripled between 1997 and 2008.

Food allergies affect 1 in 13 children in the United States.  That’s about two per classroom.

The economic cost of children’s food allergies each year in America is estimated to be around $25 billion.

In Europe, hospital admissions for severe food allergy reactions in children have increased seven-fold in the past decade.

Eight foods are responsible for 90% of all reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish.

What options do you have? Outgrow them, avoid them, or treat them.
