Read this before ordering any “food allergy” testing online!
Okay, food allergy mama+papa, let’s talk about online food allergy testing.
There is evidence-based testing and NON evidence-based testing, but differentiating between the two can be challenging, even for the most seasoned food allergy parent!
In this episode of the podcast, Pam and I discuss food allergy testing and how you can know what’s worth your time/energy/hope/money and what is not.
Hint: if you can order it online, then it’s not likely to fall into the evidence-based column.
What’s your food allergy question?

Additional Show Notes
I have talked about a non-profit…
The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. This is one of the most important components of a school’s food allergy policy!
A medical emergency response plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program, and Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary).
So… does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
