Navigating the Holidays With Food Allergies

There is one thing many December holidays have in common: food. To help you keep your child safe at school parties, private parties, family dinners and travel, we have a variety of resources:


Those Who Have Not Lived It Cannot Truly Understand It

“Sometimes the fear is overwhelming. It is a monumental task trying to navigate this life with so many restrictions. I have to teach my toddler that food that is healthy for most people is dangerous for him. I am finding it more difficult to hide my fear from him and to help him live his ‘normal’ life.” – Anonymous parent

Food allergies can be managed with the right resources and support. KFA is here to help families manage their fears and move to a place of confidence. KFA provides a vital lifeline for families through support, advocacy, education and research. You are an important part of this mission.

“It is a very difficult issue, especially when dealing with multiple allergies, and those who have not lived it cannot truly understand it.” – Anonymous parent

Please take a moment to give a special end-of-year gift through the KFA website or on Facebook to support our mission to save lives and reduce the burden of food allergies.
