My Favorite Food Allergy Resources

New to food allergies? I know how overwhelmed, scared and isolated you feel as a parent when your child is diagnosed with food allergies. Luckily now there are several great online resources for information, support and products.
I want to share some of my favorites with you.

FARE Food Allergy Research and Education
The website is very easy to navigate and has so much helpful information. Go to Tools and Resources for excellent guides, forms and information sheets. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter and alerts. The newsletter always has the latest news and alerts notify of any allergen related recalls.

Kids With Food Allergies Foundation
KWFA has great information, recipes, discussion forums and free webinars with food allergy experts.

Allergy Home
Allergy Home has excellent educational tools. Be sure to check out the Living Confidently With Food Allergy Handbook.

Enjoy Life Foods
All of their foods are gluten and top 8 allergen free! We especially like the chewy bars, Plentils chips and cookies.

Peanut Free Planet
They make it easy to buy allergy-friendly foods in one place. All foods are peanut and tree nut free AND made in dedicated peanut and nut free facilities. The also have a lot of foods that are free of the other major allergens.

They have cute allergy and asthma alert jewelry and wristbands for kids. Also many other items like, epinephrine and inhaler carrying cases, lunch bags, stickers and more.

Be sure to find out there's a local food allergy support group in your town. Mine has been a great source of local information like school information and policies and they also host some great local events.

Hope this helps!
