EFFA has carefully written informative materials which we believe will aid in a better understanding of food allergies, and has developed healthcare forms to facilitate their management. 
Forms: Individual Healthcare Plan (IHP) Forms For School Use
        In our work, we have found a lack of IHP forms appropriate for students with 
        food allergies. We have responded to this need by designing a clear and concise 
        IHP form tailored specifically for this purpose.  The staff member responsible for 
        implementing each accommodation is clearly indicated on the form.  A planning 
        worksheet with a step-by-step format is also included to help facilitate this 
        process.  IHP packets include a Cover Sheet, and Accommodation Form, a Planning 
        Worksheet, an Emergency Treatment Plan, and a list of the Risks of allergen 
        exposure possible within each 'Focus Area' of the school environment.

        Blank Forms for School Use (5 sets) - $20.00
        Blank Forms for Family Use (1 set) - $5.00

Form: Emergency Treatment Plan 

        A blank form to be completed and used for the treatment of an allergic reaction.  
        This form is designed to be clear, concise, and easy to follow by both nurse and 
        lay person alike.

        recommended for developing, implementing, and maintaining an effective school

Article: The Emotional Impact of Food Allergies
        Although the primary focus of managing food allergies is on the physical safety 
        of the child, an area which also deserves attention is on how food allergies affect 
        the student with the allergies and his or her entire family.  This article covers 
        current research on this subject, explores the different ways in which each 
        individual may be affected, and looks at recommendations for healthy coping
