Is Your Child the Face of Food Allergies?


Spread Food Allergy Awareness — Share Your Child's Photo

What does a child with food allergies look like? Can you spot them in a group of  kids on the playground? One in thirteen U.S. children has a food allergy. Look around at any typical classroom. There's an average of two children per classroom who have a food allergy.

You can raise awareness by adding your child's photo to our seventh annual Faces of Food Allergies photo album. If your child is one of the millions of children with a food allergy, upload their picture to our photo-sharing campaign. Their face will become part of our featured slideshow!

You Could Win

We will randomly select a winner each day during Food Allergy Awareness Week (May 8-14, 2016) from all photo entries. Winners will receive a prize package from Enjoy Life Foods® (approximate value: $15 - $50). One grand prize winner will receive a customized non-food gift pack from The Hershey Company (approximate value: $200). Members outside of the United States may share their photos, but we cannot mail prizes outside of the U.S.


How to Enter

It's easy to upload a photo! You will need to join or login to our community to add your photo to Faces of Food Allergies 2016. Click the "Post" button and select "File." On mobile, click the menu (three bars) icon on the top left.

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), started the Faces of Food Allergies annual photo sharing campaign in 2010 to show children with food allergies that they are not alone. Food allergies are no match for kids enjoying life and staying safe and healthy!


More Ways to Spread Awareness

May is National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month. Find a local or on-line event or other ways to get involved.

KFA will also be sharing food allergy facts and awareness messages during Food Allergy Awareness Week. Be sure to follow us:

Kids With Food Allergies would like to thank Enjoy Life Foods and The Hershey Company for sponsoring this campaign.
