Freedom to Eat: Eating Normally When Eating Isn’t Normal

Reading ingredients and asking how every food is prepared before taking the first bite is exhausting. Most people can eat without worrying about a trace of an allergen making them sick. Eating with food allergies isn’t the normal or typical way to choose foods and eat. However, people with food allergies can still eat normally. There is freedom to eat, even with food allergies! This webinar will share how those with food allergies and their caregivers can manage food allergies but still enjoy freedom to eat. Principles of hunger, fullness, and enjoyment will be discussed, as well as eating in restaurants and social situations. Apps for professionals to support patients and families will also be addressed.

  • By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Follow personal guidelines for managing allergies while still eating by the body’s cues.
  • Understand how to enjoy freedom to eat even in restrictive situations.
  • Focus on what can and should be eaten rather than what cannot.
