Keeping food allergies in mind as kids head back to school

- Food allergy expert Heather Collins stopped by KTVU the 9 to talk about food allergies.

When people send their kids off to school they might not know about food allergies.

Collins says the top food allergies are:

  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.)
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Wheat
  • Gluten
  • Shellfish
  • Fish
  • Soy

Collins recommends stocking a pantry with safe to eat products in case your child has a friend come over who has allergies.
