Food Allergies and Children - An Overview for Parents









Nourishing Advice for a Healthy Family

You may have a child that has food allergies or know of a child that has food allergies. This condition can be very serious and even life threatening. We understand that food allergies are not easy to manage. As of today, there is no cure for it and because food allergies can vary from child to child there is no one solution on how to best manage it.

One of the challenges families face is that many people don’t really understand food allergies. This condition affects more children than you think and it is worthwhile to learn about it. Every year, around the second week in May, is Food Allergy Awareness Week. It’s a perfect time for parents and children to learn more about food allergies and take the fear and mystery out of it.

Our goal is to provide a positive approach to understanding food allergies and provide tips and resources that will help parents, teachers and other adults manage this condition easier.
