March is National Nutrition Month®! This year’s theme is “Beyond the Table.” It highlights how the food choices we make can make a big difference now and in the future. Knowing where your food comes from and balancing nutrition can be important when managing food allergies.

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) can be a helpful resource as you manage your child’s food allergy. Read below to learn more about RDN’s and how they fit into food allergy management.

Nutrition is an important part of your child’s health. But if your child has food allergies – especially multiple food allergies – you may need to pay special attention to how they get their nutrients.

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) who is familiar with food allergies may be able to help you create a balanced diet plan for your child.

If you think your child isn’t getting the nutrition they need after being diagnosed with food allergies, meeting with an RDN may be the next step. Kids with Food Allergies (KFA) has a resource with more information on finding, choosing, and working with an RDN.
