Food Allergy Friends is a support group for children ages 5-10 living with food allergies.  Children will interact  in a fun, supportive environment with other children who have similar allergies and challenges.  In addition, they will learn strategies for food allergy management and the handling of difficult situations (e.g. teasing/bullying),  gain valuable skills in coping with food allergies, and build confidence as individuals living with food allergies.  Pre-registration is required by contacting erinspaulding@comcast.net or (203) 641-1349.
Food Allergy Teens
F.A. Teens is a group geared for middle and high school students living with food allergies.  This group holds quarterly events in the Greater New Haven area.  Pre-registration is also required.  For more information about group events and to register please contact erinspaulding@comcast.net or (203) 641-1349.
