Food Allergy Kids of Atlanta have a very valuable page on their site that I wanted to share with you: Restaurant Advocacy! This link has great handouts that you can share with your local restaurant to help them better manage patrons with food allergies.

As more and more children with food allergies grow up, eating out with friends and socializing increases. I remember when my son was younger, we ate out but he usually brought his own food. Mostly, since he was too young to articulate if he was having a food allergic reaction. Now that he is a teenager, he wants to eat out much more often and with his friends. We have complied a list of local restaurants where he can order food that is as safe as it can get. We’ve also created a list of what we call travel restaurants–chain restaurants that we can find around the country, such as In and Out Burger.
