Children with food allergies may experience anxiety. Worries and fears can come up for many reasons.


They may have had emotionally or physically distressing things happen to them. Maybe they are picking up on feelings of anxiety from their parents or other grownups. Or perhaps they overheard upsetting comments or conversations about their allergies.


Sometimes children struggle with anxiety related to: 

  • Trouble starting or going back to school
  • Anxiety about dealing with friends, teachers or relatives who don’t have food allergies
  • Replaying distressing events over and over in their minds
  • Fear of trying new foods or refusing foods that are safe


Join Dr. Gianine D. Rosenblum and Kids With Food Allergies to learn about anxiety coping strategies. Dr. Rosenblum, a psychologist, specializes in the treatment of trauma. She is also the mom of a teenager with food allergies.


Join this webinar to prepare for the busy back-to-school season and beyond. You will learn:

  • How anxiety affects us
  • How anxiety affects children through childhood
  • How to respond to your child’s difficult questions and fears
  • Skills and tools to cope with anxiety
  • Knowing when to get help


You may submit your questions in advance on the registration form. We will record this webinar. If you cannot attend the live presentation, we will email you a link to the recording a few days after the event.


We thank Mylan for providing an unrestricted sponsorship of this webinar.

I have a question - how do parents of potentially severe reaction pn/nut allergy parents handle allowing their child around others who are consuming the products?  I have gotten to the point where family members just completely disregard my daughters nut allergy and while she will not sample everything, i find myself restricting everyone in bringing potentially harmful foods around her for fear of contact/cross contamination.  Some feel this is overboard/ocd behavior so I am curious to see how other parents address and handle their fa child around others who are consuming.  Do you allow others to eat the potentially hazardous item while he/she is present?
