When your child has food allergies, preparations for the next school year often happen in the summer. Start planning a safe and smooth transition to the next school year using KFA's school resources. We have webinars, articles, free downloads and helpful links on 504 plans, epinephrine, hidden allergens in school crafts and much more.
Nothing feels like summer as much as cooling off with frozen desserts after a day of play. Treat your child to allergy-friendly versions of frozen pops, ice cream and sorbets from our Safe Eats® Allergy-Friendly Recipe database. Try these summery treats and add your own to our recipe database.
On July, 11, 2018, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) joined Moms Clean Air Force at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to voice concerns about climate change. (Kids With Food Allergies is a division of AAFA.) Climate change is having harmful effects on health, especially on those with asthma and allergic conditions.
The event was a play-in, instead of a sit-in, with kids' activities, music and guest speakers. Hundreds came out to show support.
