The Emotional Impact of Food Allergies on Parents and Children with Leah Robilotto, Founder of The Food Allergy Institute
By Shandee Chernow
Parents of food allergic children often suffer from high levels of stress and anxiety. They go to great lengths to keep their children safe and will feel overwhelmed with fear of a potential reaction. I invited Leah Robilotto, founder of The Food Allergy Institute, to discuss the emotional impact that food allergies have on parents and ways to manage this allergy-anxiety. During this conversation, we also discussed Leah's incredible work at The Food Allergy Institute and how she is helping families and educators gain greater peace of mind through personalized coaching. She also shared helpful advice on how to raise siblings when just one child has allergies.
