It’s #MoreThanPeanuts: Create awareness of all food allergies with our social media campaign

The fall brings new routines and a feeling of a new year. We want to create public awareness during this time of newness with our #MoreThanPeanuts social campaign

Research shows that 84% of all anaphylactic reactions in children were food-induced. Research also notes anaphylactic reactions occur because people are unaware of other priority food allergens beyond peanut, and the same precautions may not be taken.

Our campaign focuses on supporting all food allergies, bringing attention to the seriousness of allergies, and highlighting the importance of knowing what’s in the food you eat and/or share with others.

Share this important message with your friends, family, and others and drive awareness.
