This session highlights how choosing safe foods while avoiding food allergens may be compromising health.  Avoiding the allergenic foods is necessary, but not replacing the nutrients found in those foods may be risky. Participants will gain the knowledge to make healthier food selections and still maintain safe preferences.  Join us as we discuss the nutritional challenges for parents of children with food allergies and how to avoid nutritional deficiencies with simple substitutions. 

3 Measurable Objectives
1. Understand and be able to identify the 3 most common nutritional deficiencies.
2. Recognize and list healthier alternatives for the top eight allergens.
3. Develop basic knowledge on meal planning.
