Our 5 Favorite Online Resources for Food Allergy Support

If you’re raising a child with life-threatening allergies, you are not alone - there is a lot of food allergy support available online. It can be hard to wade through all the information to find the most reliable and helpful online resources, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Here are our 5 favorite resources:

Kids with Food Allergies

The Kids with Food Allergies website is a project of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It has a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions, lots of great recipes and useful free guides. It also offers a free online course which is perfect for parents who have just received an allergy diagnosis for their child and don’t know where to start.

AllergyEats

AllergyEats makes use of user reviews to bring you the most up-to-date and accurate information about which restaurants are allergy-friendly and what to expect at each one. You can search by location and/or restaurant name and filter for all relevant allergies. The site also ranks restaurants and creates list of the most friendly chains, which can be extremely helpful when you’re on a road trip. At Food Allergy Concierge, we like to add our own reviews of restaurants we have worked with, to help build the database.

Food Allergy Support

Allergic Living

The Allergic Living Magazine was founded in 2005 to “be an invaluable tool to the allergy, celiac and asthma communities.” It’s chock-full of information and includes an Ask the Allergist column. If you’re looking to feel less alone, or just be inspired, head over to the Your Stories page and browse the personal accounts of managing allergies.

FARE

Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) collects all the basic information you need to know about allergies. One cool feature is the ability to filter resources based on milestone, so you can read about managing allergies at camp, in college or while dating. You can also join FARE’s patient registry, where you answer survey questions and help advance medical research on allergies. FARE also has offline events, which Food Allergy Concierge attends regularly.

Facebook

Sometimes there’s no replacement for speaking to people just like you dealing with the same issues. Facebook groups such as Dining Out with Food Allergies and Parents of Children With Multiple Food Allergies are excellent places to ask questions and get quick answers to the questions and dilemmas that crop up on a daily basis. You can also share what you have learned on your journey and help others manage their allergies or their children’s allergies more efficiently.

What Our Clients Say

Meticulous in their preparations

During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.

 After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the hopes that she could provide a ‘normal’ restaurant experience for our family.

 Both she and Shani were meticulous in their preparations with the restaurants to ensure that our son had a wonderful and safe experience.

 We truly appreciate their efforts to take care of our son, and to provide us with a lovely vacation experience.

Comfortable, calm, and at ease

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing gift you have given us over this Pesach- the gift of having you with us!!!!

We have NEVER felt more comfortable, calm, and at ease than we did these past 10 days. Your warmth, professionalism, kindness, and care shown through in all that you did.

My children are so grateful that they were able to be with you this Pesach. You made sure that they were so well looked after and they felt so at ease and comfortable with you! You were so amazing and approachable to them! And they LOVED all the food you so amazingly prepared (supervised allergy-free food preparation, managed menus) for them!

It’s very difficult for us to trust people when it comes to our kids and allergies. You magically were able to take away ALL of our anxieties, and nervousness (and we don’t give that away so easily!!)

We can never fully thank you enough. We truly feel that you instantly became part of our family and we look forward to G-d willing being able to be with you and plan amazing trips with you many many many more times!!!!
