“What’s the Big Deal About Food Allergies?”
So your child has just been diagnosed with a food allergy. Now what? First, know that you’re not alone. Today more than 6-million kids and their families are managing a food allergy – that’s about two kids per every American classroom. What happens if they have a reaction? How do they manage at school? What happens now with family meals, eating out or even vacationing? Kids With Food Allergies, a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting you and your family with every aspect of your child’s food allergy. Currently 40-thousand strong, the KFA community shares resources of every kind – everything from blogs by medical experts, food label reading tips to recipe and meal planning suggestions to fun community events. The Kids With Food Allergies proudly celebrates 10 Years of service to families just like yours. Watch as KFA’s Michele Cassalia – herself a mom of a child with food allergies – explains.
