Food Allergy Mom

A food allergy blog for moms raising littles with food allergies

Food Allergy Mom

We’re Lauren & Katie

We’re food allergy moms, we’re friends, and we’re here for you. Between the two of us, we manage peanut, tree nut, sesame, and egg allergies, a rare banana allergy, and a dairy allergy that has since been outgrown.

We’ve learned a lot along the way, especially how important it was to have someone else (another food allergy mom) who really understands what you’re going through, because they are living it too.

When we became friends, we quickly realized how much we had needed the support of another food allergy mom.

This blog was designed to share that friendship with you.

We hope you find some encouragement, support, ideas, and really, just the company of two other moms trying to figure this out and who really do understand. <3

Encouragement, resources, tips, ideas, and support for raising littles with
food allergies from two moms who’ve been there.

Kids With Food Allergies


We’re So Glad You’re Here

Food Allergy Mom is here to get into the day-to-day of raising littles with food allergies. We are not medical experts. We are not allergists. We’re moms. And we had a LOT of questions about how to navigate life with littles and food allergies.

Everything from how to handle birthday parties, playgrounds, holidays, grocery shopping and what to do when squirrels are leaving peanuts in our yard, we’ve wondered about, and we figured you have too.

This blog is a compilation of what we’ve experienced and learned to hopefully let you know you’re not alone, and offer more resources and ideas for how to navigate the world of allergies for your family.

We’re happy you’re here!
