Food Allergy Support Forums

Dear Fellow Food Allergy Family,

As the parent of a son who’s had multiple food allergies since birth, I would like to welcome you to our new Kids With Food Allergies Web site! Here you will find our wonderful, caring online community, Parents of Food Allergic Kids (POFAK) in its new home, as well as resources on our Web site to assist you in raising a child with food allergies. I encourage you to take your time to look around and find out what our new Web site offers you. Here are some highlights:

POFAK Community is our most popular and active feature and where parents connect with each other for support. We know how overwhelming, isolating and stressful life can be when challenged with providing safe food and environments for an allergic child when so many of our day-to-day activities involve food. Here you will find other family members just like you, who want their children to have happy, normal lives while remaining safe.

The community also includes parents breastfeeding their food allergic children and parents of children on hypoallergenic and elemental formulas for their food allergies, as well as families of children with milk and soy protein intolerance (MSPI), eosinophilic esophagitis, gastroenteritis, or colitis, food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), or allergic colitis. The community's focus also includes children's latex allergy, drug allergy, insect allergy, or anaphylaxis to food or any other cause.

We encourage you to to join our active and caring online community, to connect with our many members who want to enhance their own children's lives and help other families dealing with similar issues. We share our stories, information, recipes and tips, coping strategies, as well as our successes and challenges in the day-to-day life of parenting a food allergic child. New members, including those just getting started in dealing with food allergies, are always welcome!

Recipe Database Our Safe Eats ™ recipe database offers hundreds of allergy-friendly recipes for your family in a searchable format.

Resources will give you some practical, "been there" tips from other parents, articles and frequently asked questions (FAQs) developed by our Medical Advisory Team.

In order to take full advantage of these services, you must be a Family Membership subscriber. If you cannot afford the membership fee, please register and then apply for a sponsorship.

We will be able to continue to provide these programs with your voluntary financial support of our mission. Please consider subscribing to a family membership, purchasing items in our online store, and/or making a donation today.

As a community of volunteers working together, we can do great things to support families and to help raise our children with food allergies so they live happy, safe, and healthy lives.

I invite you to join us on our food allergy journey!
