What is a Food Allergy?

Food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the United States, including 1 in 13 children. The job of the body’s immune system is to identify and destroy germs (such as bacteria or viruses) that make you sick. A food allergy results when the immune system mistakenly targets a harmless food protein – an allergen – as a threat and attacks it.

What is an Allergic Reaction?

Symptoms of an allergic reaction may involve the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the cardiovascular system and the respiratory tract. The most severe allergic reaction is anaphylaxis — a life-threatening whole-body allergic reaction that can impair your breathing, cause a dramatic drop in your blood pressure and affect your heart rate. Anaphylaxis can come on within minutes of exposure to the trigger food. It can be fatal and must be treated promptly with an injection of epinephrine (adrenaline). While any food can cause an adverse reaction, eight types of food account for about 90% of all reactions: Tree nuts, Peanuts, Egg, Milk, Soy, Wheat, Fish, and Shellfish.

PRINTING ISSUES

How do I open printables?

Click on the link below the image, all the printables are in PDF files. It will pop up automatically to download. If it does not pop up you need to install Adobe Reader here.

Can I edit the printables?

Unfortunately no. Since the printables are custom designed with fonts and graphics and saved in PDF file you will not be able to edit them. Please see our Terms and Services for more details on why you are not able to edit, modify or copy these images as they are copyright to Lil Allergy Advocates.

How can I re-size the printables?

When you open the PDF file a box will pop open with options. Look at the preview box that shows the printable. Please notice if any areas of the printable are cut off you will need to either ‘fit to page’ or ‘scale to page’ to adjust the margins for the printable area. There are also options to print 2 per page or more in the printing options.

The colors look different when I print, what am I doing wrong?

The images displayed on computer screens vary greatly, what you see on your screen and what prints may not be a perfect match. Printers also vary greatly depending on what settings you use when you print. Please expect some variation from screen to paper. Make sure to select the type of paper you use in the printer options (cardstock, glossy photo paper, plain paper, etc.) as this can affect the outcome of the color as well.

What type of paper should I use?

What paper to use is largely dependent on what you are printing. For printables that will be colored or games that will be written on such as the word searches or coloring pages, we recommend plain white paper or card stock. For the printable valentines thicker paper such as glossy or matte photo paper or card stock may be preferred.

What margins should I use?

Most printables, unless otherwise noted, are designed with .5inch margins on all sides. By choosing ‘none’ for the margins in the printer options the graphics will still be in the printable area for most printer default settings. If you find what you are printing to be outside the margins adjust your printers settings to ‘fit to printer margins’ or choose a custom setting.

Can I share the printables?

We are glad you are enjoying the printables! You are encouraged to use the printables for personal and classroom use. If you want to pin or share on Facebook please pass on the image from the post that it features NOT the printable itself. Also PLEASE give proper credit to the site linking directly to the post with images of the printable. Please see the Terms and Restrictions page for more details on sharing and using images.
