Hope you’re having a great summer! You might be getting ready to take a family vacation, send your child off to camp, or just have fun at home. I found some helpful resources and wanted to make sure you knew about them too.
Do you know the hidden names for peanut? Be sure to print out these convenient & free lists from KFA. Here’s the link for peanut allergens, and they have printables for other allergens too. These are also great to share with relatives and caregivers!
Free Food Allergy Alert Chef Cards from FARE. You need to verbally communicate the food allergy with the restaurant, but these are a way you can help visually communicate it too. They’re also available in different languages, which make them helpful when traveling.

Planning a trip to visit relatives? FAACT’s Grandparents’ Guide is a helpful resource not only for grandparents, but other caregivers too. Be sure to check out this free resource that you can print & share!
