FAACT's Grandparents' Guide

Over the years, we have heard from so many families that they wished there was more food allergy education available for grandparents. Well, we have listened. FAACT developed a guide to help grandparents care for grandchildren affected by food allergies, FAACT's Grandparents' Guide: Caring for Grandchildren with Food Allergies.

Due to the increase in food allergies among children today, many grandparents may be unfamiliar with the serious nature of food allergies. This guide will help educate them about managing food allergies when caring for their grandchildren. FAACT's Grandparents' Guide includes a comprehensive guide, which includes information, resources, and tips on the following topics:
  • Food Allergy FAACTs
  • Anaphylaxis and Signs & Symptoms
  • Epinephrine
  • Impact on Daily Activities
  • Preparing for a Visit
  • FALCPA and Reading Labels
  • Cooking, Cleaning, and Dining Out
  • Advocacy and Awareness
  • FAACT Programs
FAACT's Grandparents' Guide has been reviewed and approved by FAACT's Medical Advisory Board. We hope you enjoy this new, free resource and share it with your families and friends.
