Food allergies are on the rise in school-aged children. Food allergies pose a complex problem in school. Management of food allergies in school requires a multidisciplinary team approach that includes the parents/guardians, healthcare provider, school nurse, and school staff. Food allergy reaction/anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening event. Food allergy action plans are essential in the management of food allergy in school. Food allergy management includes the education and training of school staff in the recognition and treatment of a reaction/anaphylaxis. Utilizing an online learning course, school staff knowledge and confidence of food allergy, recognition of reaction/anaphylaxis, and administration of epinephrine show statistically significant improvement.
