Join Alexander on his first day of kindergarten, as he teaches his classmates about food allergy. Unlike all the other elephants he knows, Alexander can't eat peanuts, because he's allergic to them.

This DVD is designed to show children with food allergy that they are not alone and what they can do to stay safe when at school. It combines the animated story of Alexander with interviews of real-life children who have food allergy, and is particularly useful for opening up frank discussions about going to school with the condition. - Container
