(HealthDay News) -- Children with food allergies may feel less afraid if they know what they're dealing with.

The Kids With Food Allergies website suggests children with food allergies should know:

  • The warning signs of an allergic reaction, and how to best communicate that they are having a reaction.

  • Not to share food with others at lunch.

  • How to read food labels to look for allergens.

  • To always wash hands before and after eating.

  • To never share medications with other children.

  • To politely decline food that isn't from home.
