Managing your child’s multiple food allergies can be a daily challenge. There are food diaries and elimination diets. There is eating in versus dining out. It’s overwhelming and time-consuming to find safe ingredients and substitutes to allergens.
Now there is an app for food allergy management — Footsteps from Neocate.
I spent some time exploring the app, and here are my thoughts about how it helps food allergy management.

The app simplifies cooking for someone with food allergies is simplified.
Honorable Mention: diary section is the dominant feature since you can log your daily management.
- Food intake
- Sleep patterns

As someone who uses a spiral notebook as a food diary, an electronic option is far better and more efficient.
An Added Bonus

DO NOT BYPASS THIS SECTION. Restaurant staff/chefs appreciate having allergens written down.
Neocate Footsteps App is free and user-friendly. The interface is clean in appearance and easy to understand.
