I am a 7th grader at Windward School in Los Angeles. I am interested in allergies since I am anaphylactic to peanuts. If I eat peanuts, my throat will slowly start to close up and my body will start to swell up. I also might get a rash. I am interested in food allergies especially at school because usually, items don’t always have ingredients on them so I have to ask an employee, but the employee might not always know, so it would be easy for all students with allergies to know the ingredients as well as me so we don’t get a reaction. Because of this, I can be scared to try food items I haven’t tried before in the cafeteria so I will stick with the foods I am comfortable eating. I know some kids feel like this because I see my friends who have allergies, get the same thing or same things for lunch so I want to make sure that all kids scared to try foods, or kids that are unsure what is in some food items, be confident to eat whatever they want that doesn’t have their allergen in it.
I am a 7th grader currently attending Windward School in Los Angeles, California. I am allergic to peanuts and most tree nuts. While I am not anaphylactic, if I eat peanuts or tree nuts. I become sick, and typically puke. I could also have headaches, etc. I am interested in improving prepackaged and non prepackaged food labeling at schools because the reporting of allergens is not always clear or consistent. I don’t want others suffering from allergies to have an allergic reaction and become sick from eating/purchasing foods at school.
I am a 7th grade student attending Windward School in Los Angeles, California. The reason I am interested in allergies is because, I have many allergies myself. When I interact with cats, a few types of grass and trees, hay, soy, a type of rice, peanuts, and a few types of dogs, I get rashes all over my body, and become itchy and start sneezing. So, I am interested in allergies at schools in cafeterias, because I know that it is very discomforting, and for some people, life threatening, if we interact with our allergies.
