Food Allergies 101 [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know food allergies affect approximately 15 million Americans?  If you’re one of the many individuals or parents of children with food allergies, you are not alone.  If you’re newly diagnosed or know someone who has just been diagnosed, it is important to know and learn the basics about food allergens early and quickly.  May 14 is Food Allergy Awareness Week, but it kicks off an educational opportunity for the next 360 days.  Help us increase awareness about food allergies this week and every week of the year.  Learn a fact from our new graphic and share it along the way.

The "Facts About Food Allergies" infographic was created by Paula Karamihas, UMD Dietetic Intern.
