Receiving a food allergy diagnosis can be a lot for parents to handle! Between trying to understand the allergy, learning what things to avoid and making sure your little one is getting the proper nutrition they need to thrive, it can be complicated and confusing. Even though I am a nutrition specialist, I remember being totally overwhelmed when my daughter was diagnosed with a milk protein allergy.
To help parents like us, Kids with Food Allergies has released From Confusion to Confidence: a Starter Guide for Parenting a Child with Food Allergies - a free e-book with articles, checklists and resources on everything related to food allergies. If your child has recently been diagnosed, or you are looking for a new source of information, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
You can download the guide from the Kids with Food Allergies Web site here. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other great resources available on the site – they have a great archive of recipes as well!
Are there any other resources that you have found helpful? We’d love to hear about them!
