Stay up to Date on Child Food Allergies
ChildCare Education Institute is proud to offer CCEI119:Food Allergies in the Early Care Setting as an online no-cost trial child care training course to new CCEI users during the month of September. Food allergies are on the rise in the United States and continue to be a public health concern. More than 3 million children in the U.S have food allergies, a number that has doubled since 2002. This course provides an overview of food allergies and basic food allergy safety principles to employ in the early care setting. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to identify the center’s responsibility to provide a safe environment for children and staff who suffer from food allergies, identify the eight major food allergens, and identify the importance of food labeling and packaging.
