How My First Skool handles food allergies among children

Food allergies among children have been on the rise in recent years, making it crucial for preschools to be well-prepared to cater to their unique needs. Common allergens such as egg, cow’s milk, peanuts, and shellfish can pose serious health risks for young children.

Recognising this growing concern, My First Skool (MFS) has taken proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of children with food allergies. Through a collaborative effort involving parents and educators, children with food allergies can enjoy a supportive and allergen-aware environment that promotes their overall development and happiness.

An Allergy Emergency Response Plan

Parents are encouraged to share medical memos from their child’s doctors detailing their allergies and the necessary steps to take in the event of an allergic reaction, as the information will be useful for teachers to make the necessary preparations and respond to these potential situations,” said NFC.

All 156 MFS centres also have an Allergy Emergency Response Plan in place. This plan outlines the steps that teachers should follow in the event of an allergic reaction. Immediate medical attention is a top priority, and teachers are well-equipped to handle any emergencies that may arise. First aid training is a mandatory course for all MFS educators, and the teachers will be able to administer first aid when necessary.
