Life Links for Parents of Children with Food Allergies

Published August - 30 - 2011 Print This Post

It’s after the diagnosis! Now what!? That’s the question that prompted AANMA and American College of Allergy Asthma & Immunology to develop two Internet television productions sponsored by Mylan Specialty:


‘Chef 2 Go: Food Allergy Intervention’

Parents often wonder what foods are safe and want to make sure their children with food allergies can enjoy a home-cooked meal without sacrificing flavor or nutrition. In this show, Chef Ryan Hutmacher, owner of Centered Chef, finds an unsuspecting family in a local grocery store struggling with a laundry list of forbidden foods. Alongside board-certified allergist Dana Wallace, M.D., Chef Ryan teaches the family how-to plan, grocery shop and prepare a delicious and healthy meal that avoids a long list of food allergies.

‘Food Allergies & Anaphylaxis at School: Real World Solutions

This show brings together a panel of individuals all affected by food allergies in different ways. The panel, comprised of an allergist, school principal, psychologist, nurse and parent of two children with food allergies, debates this highly-charged topic, working through issues such as ‘peanut-free’ and ‘allergy free zones,’ and how to determine when a child is ready to self-administer auto-injectable epinephrine, the only drug that reverses an anaphylactic episode
