    Host: What can I do to empower my child to avoid allergens in school?

    Bob Gravani: The way to empower a child is really to educate them in proper allergen management. They should be aware the foods that they must avoid. They should be aware of the fact that they shouldn't be sharing lunches with other students. They shouldn't be trying foods that may contain an allergen that they have a problem with. So clearly empowering the student by education through proper education and making sure that they avoid unusual strange foods that they are not use to consume, would be a great way to reduce that risk. 1
