  • Navigating Food Allergies During the Holidays – with Kids With Food Allergies

It’s the holiday season and that can be a stressful and tricky time for the six million kids with food allergies and their families. Educating loved ones and friends about your child’s food allergies before holiday events can help keep them safe and happy.  Holiday time can be especially isolating if you don’t have a family action plan in place.  Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, Kids With Food Allergies, a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, is dedicated to supporting families with every aspect of managing a child’s food allergy. Watch as KFA’s Michele Cassalia – herself a mom of a child with food allergies – explains how to successfully navigate the season and create new holiday recipes and traditions. 


“One in 13 children in America now has a food allergy. Allergic reactions to food can be serious and potentially life-threatening.  It is essential for parents and caregivers to learn how to prevent allergic reactions, recognize the symptoms, and be prepared to act quickly should a reaction occur. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Balancing Act to share the latest information on food allergies and how you can keep children safe and healthy,” said Lynda Mitchell, Vice President Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Kids With Food Allergies Division.

About Food Allergy
Food allergy is a serious public health priority affecting millions of adults and children. An estimated 1 in 13 children in the U.S. now has one or more food allergies, and studies show a rise in prevalence over the past 10-20 years. Despite the risk of severe allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis, which can be fatal, there is no cure or preventative treatment for food allergy. Allergen avoidance and management of allergen-restricted diets is crucial to prevent allergic reactions. Prompt treatment when faced with an allergy emergency is essential to save lives.
