Food Allergy Resources

Expect Disbelief when Talking to Others About Your Children

August 2005



By Linda Marienhoff Coss

Many people will find it hard to believe that "good, healthy foods" such as milk, bread, eggs and nuts can harm your child. They do not understand that for your child, one bite or less of an allergen really can lead to an extreme allergic reaction or even death. Be assertive in making your child's special needs clear. Remember, your child’s life can be endangered by a well-meaning person who does not understand the importance of strict avoidance of allergenic foods.
