Newly Diagnosed Packet

Your Food Allergy Field Guide is a packet for individuals and families who have been newly diagnosed with food allergies.

A food allergy diagnosis is life-altering. There is a lot to learn, and it can be tough to know where to start. This packet, along with the extensive resources on our website are designed to help newly diagnosed patients and families begin their journey from diagnosis to living well with food allergies.

Within this packet, you’ll find information about what food allergies are - and what they aren't, a checklist for getting started, a copy of FARE’s Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan, information on food labels, tips for avoiding allergens and cross-contact, advice about dining out with food allergies, frequently asked questions and more, all meant to complement the care provided by a trained professional, not replace it.
