We are a Christian-based support group that is designed to support parents of kids who suffer from food allergies. Food allergies in children can come in many forms. Children can be allergic to one or more of the following: eggs, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, fish, wheat and other types of foods. This support group is designed to be a safe place where you can come and share your fears with other parents that understand what you are going through.
Having two children that suffer from life-threatening (anaphylactic response) food allergies can be very challenging. However, having a safe place to meet with other parents that also are dealing with the same daily challenges is comforting. Although we are not a “medical” group, we do share practical tips (recipes, eating out, school, family, restaurants, etc.) and resources that can be very helpful to parents of kids with food allergies. The group also encourages guest speakers occasionally that come and can educate the group on new information relating to food allergies.
If you are a parent that lives in Orange County, CA, we hope that you will come and join our next meeting. We do not offer childcare and the group is designed for adults.
We every other month on the third Tuesday every month. Meetings begin at 6:30 PM and are held at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA.
