When Lucas was first diagnosed with a peanut allergy – well, more like when Lucas had his first reaction BEFORE we could even get into the allergist – of course, my fingers went straight to the keyboard.

Google became my friend and my enemy.

I was SO overwhelmed with the amount of food allergy websites,  advocacy groups, publications, Facebook groups and more.

Knowledge is power, especially when you are, on a DAILY basis, managing the food allergies of a child or yourself.  Choosing the RIGHT websites to use as a resource is key.

I’ve handpicked some incredibly useful, dynamic and intuitive websites that appeal to not only to allergy and food allergy newbies, but also to educators, business owners, extended family and those with a general food allergy curiosity.

Bonus – several of these websites cover food allergies, asthma and other allergies.

Bonus to the bonus – look for printables, advocacy talking points, shareable statistics and informative infographics too!
