Online Food-Allergy Support groups - join or avoid ?!?!?

30 years ago when a child was diagnosed with a food allergy, not only did parents have to navigate the challenges of managing a child with this condition in a world with less awareness and education regarding food allergies, they also had to travel the journey largely alone; (aside for a doctor, allergist and spouse, of course). Experts across the globe all agree that having a strong and solid support system is instrumental in managing any significant challenge while staying emotionally healthy throughout. However, finding such a support group in the day’s pre-internet was very difficult. With the increase of social...

College is about to start and many parents are turning to online groups for advice on how to mauver this next major milestone in their child’s life. Interestingly the most pressing issues parents seem to be grappling with is food preparation- how to navigate and organise a years’ worth of meals for their child miles away from where they live, with limited cooking facilities and workspace. Food Allergy Concierge spoke to Judy Bar Eitan MSc on what steps parents should take to prepare their child for college and tips on how they should approach this change in general. Our job as...

Gluten-Free in Israel

A gluten-free diet in Israel can be difficult because there is poor awareness of gluten allergy, gluten intolerance and/or celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage of the small intestine.  There is hidden gluten everywhere and for a celiac, it can mean severe stomach pains and hospital admittance.  When a celiac patient is unable to strictly adhere to a gluten-free diet, there is also a long-term risk for certain cancers.  If you must be living gluten-free in Israel, Food Allergy Concierge  is here to guide you in staying healthy.

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!!!!
