The 'Back to School' Expo kicked off early Friday morning at Hy-Vee in Kirksville.
The expo will continue Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the same location.
Dietitians are offering allergen-friendly samplings and tips for quick, affordable meal planning.
The HealthMarket manager says it's important to pay attention to everything your children eat.
??We've had a lot of good questions and a lot of good interest and we know that people are being diagnosed with new allergies every day. It??s always a learning process. We try to stress to everybody that you need to read the packages. You can't just assume that what you're eating is a safe thing,?? said Jan Birch.
The ??Back to School?? Expo table is set up near the front of the store next to the check-out lanes.
Allergy shopping guides will be provided to those who stop by the table.
