To Eat or Not to Eat: Navigating Life with Food Allergy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, Linda Herbert and Mary Beth Feuling will discuss both the nutritional and mental health aspects of living with food allergy and how it applies to daily life. You will learn about nutrition, how to manage “may contain statements” and food prepared by others, and a review of emergency preparedness. They will review the definition of a mental health disorder as well as identify and define anxiety-related disorders that are most commonly observed among youth and young adults with food allergies. They will also discuss food allergy management behaviors that may resemble eating disorders, and provide real life examples to help determine when it is appropriate to see support from a mental health provider.
