Today there are so many kids with food allergies and we want to help those families that have that additional challenge to consider when preparing food, buying food, looking for food allergy resources, and keeping their child safe.
This is a PDF from the Dept. of Agriculture's Resource List on Food Allergies and Intolerances for Consumers published February 2008.

By food allergy (ex. peanut, or tree nut or egg) it goes through websites, organizations and foundations, books/cookbooks, groups, and health information.
