Three of my five children have food allergies. In 2010, inspired by my family’s frustrations, finding too many restaurants that were unwilling or unable to accommodate us, I created AllergyEats, an online guide to allergy-friendly restaurants. Today, using our free app and website, food-allergic diners can type in any location nationwide to quickly and easily get food allergy-friendliness ratings of restaurants in that area, as determined by other food-allergic individuals. Every time a user rates a restaurant, it helps the entire food allergy community make more informed and more comfortable dining decisions. This is a community effort. We are all in this together!
