What is a food allergy?

We have several children at Greenfield who suffer from food allergies. A food allergy is a reaction by your immune system to a normal amount of a particular food. This reaction happens every time that food is eaten. Although food allergies are rare, they are most common in children under the age of four. The most frequent food allergies are to milk, eggs, fish, nuts, citrus fruit and tomatoes. We have a comprehensive list of our children, who suffer from food allergies. However, please make sure that you have definitely informed us if your child suffers from a food allergy.
