Support Is an Important Part of Food Allergy Management


Managing your child’s food allergies can feel overwhelming. But the support of a community can make a world of difference.

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) is dedicated to saving lives and reducing the burden of food allergies through support, advocacy, education, and research. One way we do that is by offering support through our KFA community.

Helping your child avoid the food they are allergic to is not always enough. Getting support is an important part of food allergy management. Support can help you prevent allergic reactions, navigate child care and school, find safe foods, and more.

Big hugs to everyone for all their support. Sometimes I get overwhelmed, and I am so thankful I can come here and talk to some parents who have been there and done that!

I have to say this is the first online forum I have ever been involved in where everyone is kind and supportive. I’ve never had a snarky comment on a question and always felt people here truly cared and wanted to help. It’s a fabulous resource and place of support that I am truly grateful for!
