Guidelines to help stay healthy during FLU season this year:

The American Academy of Pediatrics updated its annual influenza season guidelines, withdrawing the child-friendly nasal flu vaccine, FluMist, this year. The vaccine has been deemed largely ineffective by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, leaving traditional shots as the only vaccination option.

The Safe Snack Guide

A catalog of commonly available foods that we continually update throughout the year. In addition to helping families, the Guide is intended as a resource for schools, youth sports leagues, scouting groups, clubs, parties, play dates and other events where snacks may be consumed in the presence of children with food allergies.
