New Allergy-Friendly Foods for Kids (May 2011)

May 2011



New Allergy Friendly Foods
Kids With Food Allergies investigates new allergy-friendly foods coming to the market each year. This year, there were so many new foods that we separated our 2011 Spring report into two parts. If you missed the first part of the report published in April 2011, read New Allergy-Friendly Foods Spring 2011 Part One. Below is the second part of our spring report, containing 26 additional new allergy-friendly foods. We hope you enjoy discovering what new foods are available and where you can find them!

For your convenience, we have indicated if the product is vegan or Kosher with these symbols: V   K. Additionally, we have separately indicated whether a product contains coconut versus other tree nuts. The Food & Drug Administration considers coconut a tree nut, however coconut allergy is not common and most allergists do not consider coconut a tree nut. Please check with your allergist for guidance on this issue.


New Allergy-Friendly Foods for Kids (Part II)


Word of caution: We've made a good-faith effort to obtain accurate information about these products, but as with everything you buy for your children with food allergies, be sure to verify for yourself that these products are indeed safe for the food allergies you manage for your child.
