Child care policies for food allergy: Elijah's Law report for U.S. states and territories


The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and the Elijah-Alavi Foundation (EAF) identified nine key standards that protect children with food allergies in the child care setting. AAFA and EAF developed these standards using the text of Elijah’s Law and the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education’s (NRC) Caring for our Children (CFOC) standards. We conducted a state-by-state review of child care regulations in every state and U.S. territory against these nine policy standards. This assessment aims to help advocates and lawmakers better understand what protections already exist in their states and where additional protections are needed. (author abstract)
