Baking Without Allergens
WATCH VIDEO: Baking without Milk, Egg, Soy, Wheat, Gluten and Nuts NEW!
If you were unable to attend our November 28 webinar, we have the video ready for you to view at your convenience. Our guest speaker was Colette Martin, author of Learning to Bake Allergen-Free, and she presented a fantastic introduction class to baking without allergens. Thank you, Colette!

Q&A: Baking without Allergens - Your Questions Answered! NEW!
During the class, we received dozens of questions. The answers are available in a new blog post. Find out about the differences in starches and gums, substitutes for condensed milk, options for milk replacements, milk- and soy-free butter substitutes, how to replace eggs in recipes and much more!

Our next free educational webinar will feature guest speaker Linda Coss, food allergy pioneer and author of several food allergy books and cookbooks. Look for your invitation in January!

Together, We Save Lives! Help Families Be Prepared for Emergencies

Donate to Kids With Food Allergies Foundation"If the medics hadn't been able to get him to the hospital so quickly, I don't know if Daniel would have made it. I was able to remain calm, which helped all of us, especially my teenage daughter who had accidentally given Daniel milk.

We now know that no matter how careful we are, our knowledge and preparation is what will prevent an emergency. We find ourselves to be very knowledgeable...thanks greatly to KFA."

This is the impact your donation makes in the lives of families. Thanks to your help, Daniel's family knew what to do in an emergency and was prepared to do it.

Any gift you give educates more families like Daniel's to be prepared for allergic emergencies.
Your gift will save lives.

We thank you on behalf of all the families we serve.

Food Allergy Facts

Food Allergy Awareness: Epinephrine
Did you know? Epinephrine should be given immediately to treat anaphylaxis. Delays in giving epinephrine to patients can result in rapid decline and death within 30 to 60 minutes. Epinephrine acts immediately, but it may be necessary to give repeat doses.
