Registered Dietitians

In working with the 85 million Americans that are affected by food allergies and intolerances, we have learned that dietary restrictions are only part of their story. FARE is expanding access to care and raising food allergy awareness among diverse populations, but it starts with the healthcare provider. 

Many individuals and families look to registered dietitians (RDs) and registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) for expert advice when it comes to managing their food allergy. Nutrition counseling sessions should reflect the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in taking personal preferences, cultural traditions and budget into account when making inclusive nutrition recommendations. It’s FARE’s mission to equip RD/RDNs with the most updated information surrounding food allergies and intolerances to better serve the larger community. 

Resources

Common Allergens

Although nearly any food can trigger an allergic reaction, there are nine foods that cause the majority of reactions.

Newly Diagnosed

These resources are designed to help newly diagnosed patients and families begin their journey from diagnosis to living well with food allergies.

Prevention

Dietitians can work with parents and caregivers to prevent food allergy development in infants.
