The Beginners Guide to Having a Food Allergy

Your child has a food allergy.

Your world just turned upside-down, and you may be feeling like you have no idea where to start.

I’ve been there too.

I remember the day the allergist confirmed my son had a food allergy.

I was so confused as to what a food allergy would even mean to my child. To me. To our family. What in the world is a food allergy and why am I now carrying this thing called an EPI pen?

I was so confused that I didn’t even notice the car backing out of a parking spot behind me.

That’s right. Just diagnosed food allergy, EpiPens, and now a fender bender. I was literally walking in circles trying to understand my next step.

And the good news?

I found the next step. And the next one after that, and I want to share these steps with you to help you feel less confused and less overwhelmed.

It may never become easy, but having a child with a food allergy will definitely become more manageable over time.

This guide will help you find your next step, and the one after that, upon learning your child has a food allergy.
