I've never even thought of this before. My son is 2 with fpies and we've been swimming many times. And water has gotten into his mouth many times. Maybe the parent was just telling you just for your knowledge. Just in case someone brings snacks or food to swim class. I definitely wouldn't feed him anything though unless the parents brought something. I think the best thing to do is contact the parent and voice your concerns.
I can't imagine that there would be any problems. I always mention my child's FPIES because of the snack time/treat issue. FPIES reactions would typically be less severe than a severe nut allergy, for instance, and it wouldn't happen with contact with teeny amounts of food particles in the water. Ask the parent what kinds of reactions the child has had, and which foods are most important to avoid, and I think you will be put at ease -- my child does also have regular severe nut allergy, but...
Hi I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my 2 sons have FPIES & EEG they have had reactions on swallowing water in pools. They get pale, shakes & their blood pressure drops.

Question received to The FPIES Foundation: I am looking for input on FPIES. I teach swim lessons to infants and young children. I recently had a potential client contact me about teaching [their child] . Because I am not familiar with this syndrome, I am trying to do some research to identify potential issues that could arise from teaching swimming to this child. I have protocols in place for children that I teach who have food allergies and for those who have reflux but this seems much...
A parent asks: "How have other children's reactions changed as they have gotten older? I have bee up all night as she awake suddenly from sleep around 4 hours after eating [ accidental ingestion of known trigger food ] and has a very wet cough. Keeping a night vigil as I am so afraid she will stop breathing again. (Happened after severe shock when she was first introduced to sweet potatoes after violent vomiting)"
