Attention, bakers, creators and dessert lovers!

We’d like you to share your best, original allergy-friendly dessert recipes with the Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) community. Your recipe could be included in an upcoming KFA recipe e-book, Safe Eats® Desserts. You’ll also have a chance to win prizes and the acclaim of your friends and family!

In partnership with So Delicious® Dairy Free, KFA is looking for the best vegan*, peanut and tree nut free desserts to share with our community. Winning recipes will highlight creative and imaginative ways to prepare your allergy-friendly desserts. And while we would love for you to include a So Delicious® Dairy Free product in the recipe, it is not necessary to do so.

Why not turn a traditional dessert into an allergy-friendly one? Or share your family’s favorite vegan brownie recipe or go-to birthday cake recipe? What about an allergy-friendly version of apple pie, cherry pie or pumpkin pie? There are always cookies, puddings or sorbet, too. The possibilities are endless!

Submit your best, original recipes to the KFA Safe Eats® recipe database for a chance to be published in the Safe Eats® Desserts Recipe e-Cookbook, and a chance to win some great prizes!

  • A maximum of 40 points for creativity and originality of recipe

Hi @Doingmorewithlessmom,

My apologies for the slow reply to your question! 

When you submit the recipe, it publishes on our KFA website along with the name you entered. For recipes that get added to the recipe cookbook, we will add the recipe creator's name (however people choose to be identified) and a short bio from the creator. 

The copyright becomes KFA's so that we can publish and promote the recipe(s). 

If you have a recipe you'd like to donate, just be sure that what you submit to KFA is unique. If it exists elsewhere (like on a blog), change the written directions sufficiently so that they are not exact copies. That way, there won't be two different places publishing the same content.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and we look forward to seeing your recipes!

Thank you!

Melanie Carver

I have a quick question. If I submit a recipe, KWFA then owns it? If KWFA reprints the recipe or uses it, would I be mentioned as the original creator or do I loose all rights to it once I submit?
