What to do if your child has a food allergy

It's important for children who suffer from food allergies to be careful what they eat, but it can be nerve racking for parents to send their child off to school not being able to supervise their diet.

We're working to inform parents on how to tell if your child is allergic to something and what to do from there.

If you're not sure if your child has any allergies, the lead school nurse for Kanawha County Schools has some suggestions.

"They do need to first start with their pediatrician or their family doctor who would probably refer them on to an allergist for allergy testing," said Brenda Isaac.

If your child does have a food allergy she says it's important to include everyone on their condition.
