When your child is diagnosed with a food allergy, it can be a stressful and scary time.

Friends and family might not always understand and you will likely have questions and concerns. How will we handle parties and potlucks? What about school? What’s the best way to store and carry life-saving medication? Can we ever take a vacation?

For parents dealing with food allergies in their kids in Columbus, Ohio, knowledge is power.

This is where a food allergy support group can come in handy. Moms (and dads!) can find a safe place to vent, learn about recipes, products and treatment and get support about food allergies and kids in Columbus, Ohio.

So where do you find a support group? Your allergist might know of one through a hospital. There are also online support groups on sites like Facebook. And you can look up support groups for food allergies and kids in Columbus, Ohio on the Food Allergy Research and Education (or FARE)’s website.

Another great group is the No Nuts Moms Group. This national group has smaller chapters in several cities across the U.S.

One of the best things about support groups – both online and in person – is that it helps parents not feel so alone. After all, we all need help (or a hug) sometimes!

In addition to offering advice and education, support groups can also be a good way for your kids to meet others with similar allergies. Some support groups offer allergen-free playdates and outings.

So if you are a parent dealing with food allergies in your kids in Columbus, Ohio, seek out a support group. Already have a support group? Lucky you!
