Unique Opportunity For Teenagers With Food Allergies…Food Allergy Cooking Classes

I am very excited to announce a unique opportunity for teenagers with food allergies…Food Allergy Cooking Classes!

The Town of Whitby’s (Ontario) 2013 Fall Activity Guide is offering Food Allergy Cooking Classes to youth 15+…click here for a link.

The Food Allergy Cooking Classes will focus on:

– how to read ingredient lists for their food allergens
– cross-contamination in the kitchen
– how to adapt a recipe to meet their food allergens
– how to follow a recipe
– hands on experience creating delicious food allergy friendly foods

Preparing youth with food allergies to be independent in the kitchen with basic cooking skills is an essential basic need.

Our youth with food allergies will one day be moving on…giving them the basic tools to create allergy friendly foods for themselves is a lesson worth giving.

I am happy to announce that I will be teaching the classes…so excited!

This is a great opportunity for youth with food allergies to get together, socialize, learn some life long kitchen skills, enjoy some great tasting allergy friendly food and realize they are not alone on their journey.

If you have food allergies and live in the Durham, Ontario area…this course is for you!

Have you ever taken a Food Allergy Cooking Class? How was it?  What did you learn?
Are there Food Allergy Cooking Classes in your area?  Have you ever considered signing up for one?
If you could take a Food Allergy Cooking Class…what would you hope to learn from it?

I would love to get your feedback to help me prepare for the Food Allergy Cooking Classes…thank you.

  1. You inspire me. Thank you for your blog and your dedication. My daughter starts kindergarten on Monday and must stay for lunch. I have so many mixed feelings. I’m scouring your recipes for lunch ideas.

    • You made my day! Lunch ideas can be tricky…luckily I have one son who is happy to eat the same thing every day but then the other is much pickier, has more food restrictions and bores easily with his limited selection. I hope you find what you need. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Congratulations! What a wonderful opportunity for kids in your area! I would love to spend time in the kitchen with you to enjoy your gentle humor! Lucky kids 🙂

  3. My son is registered for this class. If not enough enrolment the city has authority to cancel the program. Thank you for spreading the word.

    • Fantastic! Did you hear about it on Anaphylaxis Canada’s facebook page? I am hoping their exposure will increase the odds that the class will run. Thank you for signing up. 🙂 What are his food allergies?

Shall we discuss?
