5/20/2016:  Video Games for Food Allergic Children

A Rhode Island based children's research center and a software development company are teaming up to create a video game that helps children understand and handle their food allergies.  [1] By placing the child in a virtual situation, the child can decide how to handle it.  Perhaps their grandmother is pressuring them to eat those cookies she baked.  How can a child make sure they are safe without hurting grandma's feelings?  The game is called, "Food Allergy Adventure" and also helps children read food labels.
