Passover is a holiday that is rich with meaning and filled with traditions, many of which involve food. If you are managing food allergies, this guide will help you create a safe, fun, and meaningful celebration.
With the school year ending and summer camp programs more limited because of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, you may be looking for new ways to keep kids busy with things like arts and crafts or sensory play.

You can make some of these items at home with safe ingredients. Our friend Elena loves play dough and ooblick. Both of...
Teaching your child about food allergies is an important part of keeping them safe. Young children can start to learn about food allergies at a young age.

The links below include books, videos, games, music and classroom resources. 1. Ally and Andy’s Activity Book This coloring and activity book from...
Easter is a season of joy and celebration. Decorated eggs, chocolate bunnies and other candies can all be unsafe for someone with food allergies. There are many non-food alternatives for celebrating Easter, whether at home or at school.
Play-Doh® is a great way to entertain kids at home and at summer programs. But Play-Doh® and other commercial and homemade modeling doughs contain wheat, one of the top 8 foods that cause allergic reactions. You can make wheat-free play dough at home so you can make sure it doesn’t contain any of your child’s food allergens. Here are some alternative recipes for Play-Doh®.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, “Food used in lesson plans for math or science, crafts, and cooking classes may need to be substituted depending on the allergies of the students.” The guide below...
Nice list. However, as a mom of a child with a soy allergy, the recipes should note that most margarines and "vegetable" oils today contain soy, which should be taken in to account if the child in question has a soy allergy.

Hello, I am new to the group and I am helping my little girl who is 6 yrs old. Who has allergies to the following Eggs-Cow Milk- Soy-Wheat. does anybody have any suggestions about what bread she may have and where to find this! Thank You!! Sharon
Sharon! We are glad you found us!! You will find more suggestions for bread on our forums. I posted your question on our main support forum so you can find more suggestions. Here is a link to the post. Feel free to post and introduce yourself. http://community.kidswithfooda...eggs-milk-andamp-soy I believe EnerG makes bread free of your dd's allergens. I have heard good things about the tapioca bread & the rice bread. Melanie
May I post this guide on my blog or would you prefer I post the link? I want to spread the word about your organization as well as inform people directly because I have met so many people who seem to feel as if they have to reinvent the wheel of resources. Thank you for creating these lists.
I am a teacher and have NEVER thought about this until now. My 20 month old has severe egg allergies so researching allergy information has become my new habit. I have printed this list and will share it with his teachers and keep one for my own classroom.
Welcome JWalker2! We are glad you found us. This list is a great thing for teachers. I always share a copy with my son's teachers and I supply a copy for his 504 plan. Teachers are always amazed at the places where food can hide! Be sure and join us over on the Babies, Toddlers & Preschoolers forum. http://community.kidswithfooda...oddlers_preschoolers
This post and all the comments are one of the reasons that KFA has been voted as a TopRated Nonprofit. We are so fortunate for all that you provide and I endeavor to spread the word to help all families with food allergies. We are in this together. Already airlines have made changes since we flew to CA last summer - Delta was quite accommodating to let up pre-board and wipe down our seating area but United gave us a slight hassle until I spoke with a supervisor. It is heartening to learn...
I am so excited to find this! My son is going to be celebrating a Passover feast with his 1st grade class at his Christian school (they have been studying Egyptian history and the Exodus this year). The feast traditionally includes most of the things he is allergic to (eggs, tree nuts and wheat). It is great to have a resource to help me navigate this event.
Thank you so much for this. It is rare to find this sort of resource representing so well the broad range of Jewish observance of Passover, and the fact that this does it tremendously helpful and appreciated!
Welcome, Ls1234! As you're making your Passover plans, don't forget to start a new topic on our community forums -- the Main Support Forum or the Food and Cooking Forum -- for any questions or problems you may run into!
I'm Orthodox and although these ideas are great for some, I've dealt with allergies for Passover for 9 years. Yes, there are ways around everything, but some of these ideas are a bit unconventional. Please, please take these ideas with a grain of salt and speak to a rabbi. If anyone were to need ideas, you're more than welcome to contact me via private message.
another issue that kept me awake last week. During the "purge" week, people in the West Coast "should" purge ALL their emergency food .. which makes the family ultra vulnerable in care of an earthquake, until new food has been purchased. How do people do to reduce this crack in the plan? ((I don't care, my emergency food is in the basement, and only rats chew marks and poops would make me destroy ANY of that safe food))
