Allergies 101

Updated: Jul 5, 2021

There are many resources out there, I found our pediatrician's hospital to be a great resource.

Through Ai Dupont De Nemours, they have a resource website that has many other topics including Allergy. Kidshealth.org.


Of course the big organizations:

Food allergy research & education FARE/FAAN - https://www.foodallergy.org

Kids With Food allergies - http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org

American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology - https://www.aaaai.org

American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology - https://acaai.org

Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America - http://www.aafa.org

CDC - https://www.cdc.gov/healthyschools/foodallergies/index.htm

Now of course there are redundancy on the websites and there are a maze of links.

Come with questions in mind and try not to spend too much time.


Some basics from me:

  • If unsure then don't take a chance

  • Read label multiple times and completely

  • Cross Contact is a priority to understand

  • Ask

  • If not comfortable with the answer, get clarity

  • Call ahead



Key takeaways:

There are lots of data out there.

Try not to spend your valuable time bouncing from one subject to the next

Have a game plan when eating out

Cross contact understanding is important

Labels can be tricky


Your Actions:

Write questions you want answered

Give yourself a time limit for researching

Review the websites and sign up for what you see valuable

Call ahead when eating out

Ensure you are comfortable

Make sure you read labels thoroughly
