Food Allergy Aware Studio and Dojo Posters

Food allergies are a concern not only in the classroom setting, but also in other places like the dance studio, and martial arts dojo. 

There have been a few times over the years where I have had my heart jump to my stomach watching my daughter come out of a studio with a candy in her mouth. Even though her dance teachers have always been told about her severe food allergies, mistakes can happen.

Our rule is only candy from home unless it is pre-approved, but when an instructor or adult in a position of leadership hands a child a candy, sometimes that rule can be forgotten.

Sticky hands from an earlier snack, especially if the snack was eaten in the studio can also be an issue if shared equipment or a shared dance bar is involved. 

A poster is a good reminder for both adults and children alike.  A recent email from a dance teacher asking for a sign for her studio inspired these new posters. 

Thanks to her I can now offer them to you all!
