Braintree Tackles Food Allergies

On January 31st, Anna Tourkakis, an “expert” presenter on food allergies led the JSI Food Allergy training at Braintree High School.  School food service employees from Braintree and neighboring towns joined together for this Workshop to Go.  The training covered the difference between food allergies and food intolerances, foods that commonly cause allergies, how to read labels for potential allergic ingredients, and other strategies to manage food allergies at school.

The participants had great questions throughout the workshop and really enjoyed the presentation.
