Food Allergy Policies in Schools

Great article about how to manage food allergies in schools.  If you've read anything about the horrible situation in Florida a couple of months back, this is a fantastic example of schools that actually know what they are doing.  Unfortunately, it took the death of a teenager to initiate the advocacy required to get these policies into place.

Wouldn't it be great if we could institute these in our country before tragedy occurs?  Sadly, New York has a long way to go with this issue.
