Schools Offered New Guidelines for Students with Allergies

ATLANTA - The Centers for Disease Control has issued new voluntary guidelines to make schools safer for children with food allergies.

The CDC recommends foods that are common allergens should not be served at class parties or used in class projects or science experiments.

Schools are also encouraged to use non-food incentives for prizes, gifts and awards.

The CDC also recommends school staffers be trained in how to use an Epi-Pen in case of a severe reaction and children who use their own injectors should be able to get to them quickly.
