Food Allergy Awareness Week 13th-19th May 2018

food allergy awareness week

Food Allergy Awareness Week runs every year. This year, Food Allergy Awareness Week is running from the 13th until the 19th May. The idea behind the awareness week is to help raise knowledge and understanding of different food allergies and anaphylaxis. Food Allergy Awareness Week brings together multiple organisations, charities and individual. All of whom highlight the importance of allergen awareness and aim to reach a wider audience.

There are many notable events taking place during the awareness week. For example, the Empire State Building is turning the colour teal in honour of the week. Other activities are encouraging children to be helpful to their friends with food allergies through the PAL (Protect A Life) event.

Why Food Allergy Awareness Week is important

Food allergies can be dangerous and even fatal. Worryingly, someone in the world is admitted to hospital every three minutes as a result of a food allergy reaction. With this in mind, it is vital for everyone to have an awareness of what to do in a food allergy situation. Furthermore, the food industry must make sure that all products explicitly label products to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction.
